Minnesota Vikings fight childhood hunger with Taste of the Vikings event at Mall of America®

Approximately 375,000 children in Minnesota currently receive free or reduced-price meals during the school year. When the school year ends however, only about 20 percent of these kids continue to access similar meal programs over the summer.

In an effort to strengthen the battle against childhood hunger, the Minnesota Vikings will host Taste of the Vikings presented by Carlson at Nickelodeon Universe® on Monday, Nov. 19 to rally support for the one in six kids who are at risk of hunger.
This ticketed event is an opportunity for individuals to sample food and beverages from the Twin Cities’ finest restaurants while mingling with Minnesota’s top professional athletes including current and former Vikings players Adrian Peterson, Christian Ponder, Percy Harvin, Jared Allen and many more. All proceeds will benefit the Vikings Children’s Fun Summer Lunch Program and Second Harvest Heartland to bring more summer meals to kids.

Taste of the Vikings is a companion to the nationwide Taste of the NFL. In their 21 years, Taste of the NFL has distributed more than $12 million to hunger relief organizations in NFL cities.

Tickets for the event can be purchased at www.vikings.com/schedule/taste-of-the-vikings.html. For more information, see this video from the 2011 Taste of the NFL Minnesota event.
WHEN: Monday, Nov. 19, 2012, 7 – 9:30 p.m.
WHERE: Mall of America – Nickelodeon Universe
