NFL Players Coalition Team Up with Justice-Involved Youth for Food Truck Pop-Up at the Super Bowl
For two days at the NFL Experience at the Convention Center in Phoenix, Café Momentum—a top-rated restaurant that is almost entirely staffed by youth who have experienced the juvenile justice system—has teamed up with Players Coalition and Stand Together Foundation to bring its innovative model to the Super Bowl for the second year in a row to show that there is a better way to support justice-involved youth.
The pop-up event brought together athletes, including NFL Legend, Players Coalition Member and Stand Together Ambassador Shaun Alexander; Players Coalition Co-founder, 2015 Walter Payton Man of the Year and Super Bowl XLVII Champion, Anquan Boldin; NFL linebacker and Stand Together Ambassador Dhani Jones; criminal justice reform advocate Alice Marie Johnson; credentialed media; and fans to enjoy Café Momentum’s famous hot honey chicken and biscuits—a staple from Café Momentum’s brick-and-mortar restaurants.
“When kids exit the juvenile justice system, they lack the support and resources they need to be successful. Our model has proven that when communities build an ecosystem of support around a young person, our youth can achieve their full potential,” said Chad Houser, CEO and Founder of Café Momentum and Momentum Advisory Collective. “We are honored to take part in the Super Bowl again this year in partnership with the Players Coalition and Stand Together Foundation. We are spreading awareness of the failures of our nation’s juvenile justice system by offering a better way to transform the lives of justice-impacted youth.”
