Roland Foods is Thrilled to Support the Taste of the NFL Event in Indianapolis!

For the second year in a row, American Roland Food Corp. is thrilled to support the Taste of the NFL event. Held annually on the eve before the big game, the Taste of the NFL brings together the country’s top chefs, NFL players, and hundreds of volunteers to “Party with a Purpose®”. With over 3,000 guests in attendance, the event raises millions of dollars to help fight hunger in America.

“Roland Foods is thrilled to be participating in The Taste of the NFL again this year” said Lisa Kartzman, Director, Public Relations for American Roland Food Corp. “The Taste is a special event in that the money raised is dispersed to hunger relief organizations around the country. It is a great way to reach those in need across our country.”

Roland Foods will provide participating chefs with high quality specialty food items for their featured dishes. Chef Marc Payero, Executive Chef/Director of Restaurant Associates, and Executive Chef at the Huddle CafĂ© at NFL Headquarters in NYC, will be using Roland® Chipotle peppers in his Chipotle Chicken Chalupas with Smoked Corn Salsa and Crumbled Blue Cheese. Other Roland ® products will be featured on the dazzling plates on Saturday, as well as the VIP Friday Night Huddle event for all the chefs, players, and select special guests.

Roland Foods is committed to making food available to those less fortunate, and participates in a variety of hunger relief events throughout the year.

The Taste of the NFL is a premier food and wine event with more than 32 restaurant and chef stations (one from each NFL city), providing fabulous food and wine pairings for guests to sample. Chef stations also feature an NFL player (either current or alumni) to sign autographs and snap photos with lucky attendees. Each year the money raised is allocated to food banks across the country in each NFL team’s home city. Special emphasis is placed on a food bank from the hosting city, and this year it will be Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana.

This year’s “Party with a Purpose®” will take place at Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana, one of the largest food banks in the United States. Gleaners Food Bank has graciously offered to host this year’s event in its 300,000 square-foot warehouse. Transformed for the evening, the space will offer thousands of guests the opportunity to see firsthand the important role of a food bank within a community.

The Taste of the NFL has raised and distributed over $11 million to food banks across the country. For more information on how you can get involved please go to For a complete list of the top chefs participating in the event, please go to http://www.tasteofthenfl.lcom/chefs.
