The Taste of the NFL Jacksonville, part of a league-wide initiative of football teams working within their own communities to help tackle hunger, was held Dec. 10 in the U.S. Assure Club. 

“The reason why we are here tonight is because hunger is an issue that touches all of our hearts, and especially the hearts of these chefs who truly believe no one should go without food. They have donated their time and talent to raise money for this special cause,” said J.P. Shadrick, Jaguars media host.

Chefs included Chef Sean Kinoshita with Delaware North; Chef Michael McKinney with Restaurant Orsay; Chef Waylon Rivers and Chef Rebecca Reed with Black Sheep Restaurant; Chef Kerri Rogers with Bellwether, and Chef Kim Savage with Pastiche Catering.

Proceeds will benefit the Jaguars hunger relief programs, including the Jaguars/Publix food distribution of 1,200 holiday meals held Dec. 18, and proceeds from the silent auction will benefit Feeding Northeast Florida.
