Taste of the Vikings Takes Another Kick Against Hunger

December 27, 2012 By: Sara Blair Category: WordPress Import

During the holiday season when we do our best to think about others and give back, the players and coaches of the Minnesota Vikings did just that at this year’s Taste of the Vikings event at Mall of America.

At the event, attendees sampled food and wine from some of the Twin Cities best restaurants and took pictures with and got autographs from the entire Minnesota Vikings roster. All proceeds from the Taste of the Vikings event benefitted the Vikings Children’s Fund Summer Lunch Program through Second Harvest Heartland, and this year, we were able to raised nearly $130,000! That’s enough to provide 481,000 meals to low-income kids in need of food!

Thanks to the Minnesota Vikings, Taste of the NFL founder Wayne Kostroski, presenting sponsor Carlson Companies, local chefs, the countless volunteers who gave their time and all those who came out to help us in our mission of fighting hunger!
