Prilosec OTC, Taste of the NFL partner to donate meals

BY Michael Johnsen

CINCINNATI — The team behind Prilosec OTC announced Thursday that it is teaming with Taste of the NFL this football season to rally NFL fans to support their local food banks as they prepare for an epic Homegating season of food, fun and football. Prilosec OTC will donate 1 million meals to more than 30 food banks across the country over the course of the season.
 
“Family, food and football are three of my favorite things, and during the NFL season, Prilosec OTC gives me the freedom to enjoy my Homegating parties without worrying about my frequent heartburn,” comedian Larry the Cable Guy, Prilosec OTC spokesman, said. “This football season I’m proud to say that I’m teaming up with Prilosec OTC to fight more than heartburn — we’re fighting hunger, too.”
 
Procter & Gamble recruited two other frequent heartburn sufferers and NFL superstars — Nick Mangold of the New York Jets and DeMarcus Ware of the Denver Broncos — to encourage NFL fans to join them in the fight against hunger. During this NFL season, Mangold and Ware will represent Prilosec OTC in their communities, raising awareness of the issue for their local food banks. 
 
From Sept. 10, 2015 until Jan. 1, 2016 fans can enter the Prilosec OTC You Can’t Beat Zero Super Bowl Sweepstakes at YouCantBeatZero.com for a chance to win an expenses-paid trip to Super Bowl 50. 
 
According to Feeding America, every dollar donated by Taste of the NFL results in an average of eight meals for families struggling with hunger. Prilosec OTC will donate $125,000 to Taste of the NFL on Feb. 6, 2016, the company said.
