How about a Super Bowl party with a purpose?

The 26th Annual "Taste of the NFL" cooking competition was held in Brooklyn on the eve of the big game.

Chefs from the 32 cities that have NFL teams cooked up a storm to support local food pantries.

"We want to feed all of the hungry in all of the NFL cities, along with the other things Taste of NFL does. So I'm just glad to be part of it. And I have been a part of it for years,” said NFL Hall of Famer Floyd Little.

“The nice thing about having this in New York is that a lot the New York City and New Jersey food shelters are going to benefit from it. We're gonna raise a lot of money and we’re going to feed a lot of people,” said former Giant Bill Ard.

To date, Taste of the NFL has distributed over $14 million to campaigns that fight hunger.
