On November 18, 2019, the fourth annual Taste of the Rams, presented by Don Lee Farms, will be held at Universal Studios Hollywood Globe Garden. Proceeds will benefit the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, whose mission is to mobilize resources to fight hunger in our community. Guests will sample dishes from LA’s best chefs and have the chance to mingle with and get autographs from LA Rams players. To date, this annual event has raised nearly half of $1 million to date, which is the rough equivalent of 2 million meals for neighbors facing hunger and food insecurity.
Once again, Todd Gurley II is sharing his star power as the Honorary Chair of the event. “It is truly fulfilling for me, as well as for my teammates and the entire Rams organization, to give back to the community that we are part of,” said Gurley.
Donald Goodman, President of Don Lee Farms, said, “Don Lee Farms is proud to be the presenting sponsor for Taste of the Rams again this year. As a company based in Los Angeles, we care about our community and have supported the Food Bank for many years.”
“We are grateful for our relationship with the Los Angeles Rams and with all of the amazing chefs who donate their time and talents to make this event a success every year,” said Michael Flood, President and CEO of the Food Bank.
Among those expected to attend:
- LA Chefs: GINO CAMPAGNA – Barilla, CHRIS FELDMEIER – Love & Salt, RAPHAEL FRANCOIS – Tesse, TED HOPSON – The Bellwether, JACKSON KALB – Jame Enoteca, FERN KAEWTATHIP and NOREE PLA – Luv 2 Eat, STEVE SAMSON – Superfine Pizza and Rossoblu, ADAM SOBEL – Osteria Cal Mare, YOYA TAKAHASHI – UMI and BENJAMIN UDAVE – Culinary Consultant.

This event helps raise money and awareness for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, but they are in need all year long. One in five people living in Los Angeles County struggles with food insecurity and for children, that number is one in four. The food bank has a wide variety of programs to assist children, seniors, working families and individuals facing hunger in the Los Angeles community.
