For the second straight year, Freestore Foodbank has selected Butler County’s Jag’s Steak & Seafood to represent the Cincinnati Bengals and Freestore Foodbank at a cooking event held on the eve of Super Bowl LIV in Miami.
Jag’s will send Chef Proprietor Michelle Brown and members of the West Chester Twp. restaurant’s culinary team to participate in Taste of the NFL: Party with a Purpose on Saturday to demonstrate the finest dishes Cincinnati has to offer among the country’s top chefs at Taste of the NFL.
They'll join hosts culinary experts and TV personalities Andrew Zimmern and Adam Richman at the event, which is being hosted by The Diplomat Beach Resort in Miami.

"Michelle and the staff at Jag's Steak & Seafood have shown an amazing commitment to giving back to the community and supporting Freestore Foodbank through our annual Kick Hunger Challenge," said Trish Rayner, vice president of external affairs at Freestore Foodbank.
“We are proud to have someone of Chef Michelle’s talents representing our region at this year’s Party with a Purpose the evening before the Super Bowl in Miami, and can’t wait to see what her team comes up with this year.”
Last year, Freestore Foodbank raised $52,393 through its annual Kick Hunger Challenge, sponsored by TriHealth, providing more than 150,000 meals to our neighbors in our community. Jag's Steak and Seafood raised $24,593 in support of Freestore Foodbank programs last year alone through the Challenge.
“We are honored to be participating in this great cause and are excited to again be selected as Cincinnati’s representative at Taste of the NFL,” Brown said. “Giving back is an important part of what we do, and we extend a special thank you to Freestore Foodbank for their work to help feed our community.”
