Musically Fed Rescues Over 3,100 Meals from Super Bowl LVII
Musically Fed, in partnership with the Super Bowl, delivered over 3,100 meals during Super Bowl week, collecting excess catering from set up, the Super Bowl Music Fest, and the Super Bowl itself. Musically Fed worked each day to identify and provide unused catering from different sources, which were picked up and delivered to local agencies across the Phoenix area, including The Ryan House, The Faith House, Phoenix Impact Center, 7th Street Food Pantry, East Valley Impact School, Victory Village, Native American Connections, and St Vincent de Paul.
Musically Fed is celebrated for mobilizing the music industry in the fight against hunger by working with artists, promoters, management, venues, festivals, and events to donate unused backstage meals, as well as VIP and artist catering, to community organizations that feed veterans and people facing homelessness and food insecurity nationwide.
Thanks to the caterers and organizations that made this possible: DPS, On Location, Footprint Arena, Desert Diamond Arena, C&E Catering, and Phoenix Culinary Collective.
"This was a heroic community effort working with various entities of the Super Bowl to ensure that no catering was tossed, but instead went to families and people in need of nutritious and healthy food. We are grateful for this huge opportunity," says Musically Fed founder Maria Brunner.
About Musically Fed: Founded in 2016, Musically Fed identifies the opportunities, procures the resources, and coordinates all aspects of food handling, transport, and distribution, making it easy for promoters and performers to leave each city they visit with a lasting positive impact. When COVID-19 shut down the live music and event economy in 2020, Musically Fed pivoted its mission to creating drive-thru distribution events in eight major cities that provided more than 135,000 meals for struggling gig workers and their families, with an emphasis in Phoenix.
Musically Fed receives no government funds and exists because of individual and corporate donations. Those passionate about ending hunger can contribute to this life saving work at www.musicallyfed.org.
