Taste of the Rams 2018

This year, the third annual Taste of the Rams event presented by Don Lee Farms will be held on Monday, November 5th, at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City. Join Todd Gurley II, Honorary Chair and the NFL’s reigning Offensive Player of the Year to help raise funds and awareness for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.

Enjoy samples of LA’s finest food from our city’s award-winning chefs while mingling with your favorite Rams players, taking photos and getting autographs.

This event has raised more than $310,000, supporting our mission to fight hunger in LA County. Every dollar donated enables to the Food Bank to provide four meals, so Taste of the Rams has provided more than 1.2 million meals for our neighbors in need.

This year’s event will feature 15 of Los Angeles’s top chefs including Steve Samson of SOTTO and Rossoblu, Neal Fraser of Redbird and Vibiana, Ted Hopson of The Bellwether, and Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken of Border Grill.
