2019 Presenting Sponsor

Taste of the Rams 2019


The fourth annual Taste of the Rams event attracted more than 400 Los Angeles community members and raised more than $150,000 to benefit the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. To date, this annual event has raised roughly $650,000 – enough for the Food Bank provide enough food for more than 2.5 million meals.

Todd Gurley II shared his star power once again as the Honorary Chair of the event for the third consecutive year. “It’s a good feeling, putting smiles on other peoples’ faces and just doing it out of the kindness of your heart,” said Gurley, whose mother was also in attendance. “That was the way I was raised and that’s the way I feel it should be.”

Thank you to all of the members of the Rams organization, chefs, sponsors, Andrew Siciliano and all of the guests who helped us take a stand against hunger!
