For the past 29 years, Taste of the NFL's Party with a Purpose has strived to raise awareness and money to help kick hunger while donating more than 25-million dollars in the process.

This year, it’s being held in our own backyard at The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, the night before the Big Game.

Chef Paula DaSilva, From The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale, will be one of the 40 prominent chefs participating in the fun-filled event.

"Party with a Purpose is a really unique event and it's not just to celebrate the Super Bowl. It's really to raise money for food to feed families. Over the course of 29 years, they have fed over 220-million meals in over 32 cities and that's really important. As chefs, we want to celebrate the Super Bowl but really it's about the foundation of it and what it's for," said Chef DaSilva.

Click on the video to see Chef DaSilva and Melissa Marrero make braised short rib tostadas, which consists of coleslaw, avocado puree, pickled onions, scallions, short rib, and a fried corn tortilla.

Taste of the NFL’s Party with a Purpose will be held on Saturday, February 1st.
