The Kansas City Chiefs may have won Super Bowl LIV, but Miami residents struggling with food insecurity have turned out to be the big winners. With the help of partners NFL Green and Centerplate, it is estimated that Food Rescue US – Miami rescued 35,000 pounds of excess food from Super Bowl LIV and related events
37 volunteers, under the guidance of Food Rescue US – Miami Site Director Ellen Bowen, directly transferred the excess food to local social service agencies feeding the food insecure, including Miami Rescue Mission, Broward Outreach Center, Broward Partnership for the Homeless, Lotus House Shelter, and Camillus House.
“Being able to deliver this food, including ribs, beef tenderloins, barbecue chicken, vegetables, fruits, and even some specialty desserts, to men, women, and children who are hungry provides sustenance and hope for a better tomorrow.” – Ellen Bowen, Site Director, Food Rescue US – Miami
