What’s more American than chili and football? How about supporting the farmers in the U.S. For the first time in Super Bowl history three varieties of HOMEGROWN chili will be offered at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis this upcoming weekend. Thanks to Farm Aid and Centerplate, the hospitality and culinary hosts of Super Bowl XLVI, this will actually mark the first time that an organic concession has ever been sold at the Super Bowl.

The three HOMEGROWN chili varieties include organic vegetarian, beef, and pork and each features ingredients from family farms in Indiana. But that’s not all. Centerplate is also donating $2 to Farm Aid for every bowl of chili sold, which will benefit family farms across the U.S.

John Mellencamp, musician and Farm Aid co-founder, said in a press release, “Farm Aid is introducing football fans to family farmers by serving HOMEGROWN Chili at the Super Bowl. It’s good food from family farms, including some from right here in Indiana.”

Won’t be making it to the game in person? Check out HOMEGROWN’s chili recipes on the Farm Aid website so you can enjoy them at home. Also check out our 10 Delicious Vegetarian Super Bowl Recipes for more ideas.
