Throughout the evening, you will have the opportunity to rub shoulders with your favorite current Vikings players and coaches, as well as enjoy food from the finest Twin Cities’ restaurants and your favorite E&J Gallo, MillerCoors and Pepsi products.
Prior to and during the event, bid on exclusive and unique experiences many of which will bring you inside the Vikings new home of Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center. Including the Vikings locker room, indoor practice facility, and more!
Your attendance and contributions at the Taste of the Vikings will directly benefit the Minnesota Vikings Foundation mission to advance the well-being of youth through engaging health and education initiatives.
This is the first generation in history tracking to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents’ generation, largely due to physical inactivity and poor nutrition. Statewide there are over 106 million missing meals every single year for at risk youth. In the Twin Cities alone, there are over 250,000 children missing meals, and current efforts only fulfill 15% of that need. There is work to be done in our community and tonight we ask you to join the Minnesota Vikings Foundation in meeting this challenge.
