What happens to Super Bowl leftovers?

In past years, almost all the food left over from the Super Bowl went into a landfill, but this year Food Rescue US, Centerplate Hospitality and the NFL Green Initiative collected and distributed over 30,000 pounds of food to local Miami shelters with help from countless volunteers.

The effort began the Monday after the Kansas City Chiefs' victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Volunteers went to Hard Rock Stadium in Miami to collect, pack and ship massive amounts of food that remained from concession stands, VIP catered sections, suites and other areas. The rescued food included beef tenderloins, barbecue chicken, wings, ribs and charcuterie plates.
