Can we get chef John Howie in that victory parade Wednesday? Thanks to the restaurateur and diehard football fan, Seattle took first place in another Super Bowl event — the annual Taste of the NFL Kick Hunger challenge. Working with former Seahawk Craig Terrill (story over here), he raised more than $83,000 to feed people in need for the non-profit Food Lifeline organization. As the winning city, Seattle’s Food Lifeline will get an extra $10,000 kicked in from Taste of the NFL. It’s the second year Seattle has won the challenge, and marks about a decade of Howie representing the city and Seahawks for the organization.

Howie, who has dedicated considerable time and money to fund-raising work, said the feat “just goes to show how philanthropic this city is.” The winnings are expected to pay for some 400,000 meals.
