The Kansas City Chiefs strive to uplift those dealing adversity, especially children and families in crisis. One of the most identifiable areas are those that are food insecure. In our region, 375,000 individuals are unsure of where their next meal is coming from. Through initiatives including the Chiefs Thanksgiving Food Distribution, Souper Bowl of Caring, Harvester’s BackSnack program, Lift Up America and Operation Breakthrough, countless members of the Chiefs Kingdom received much-needed nourishment on an annual basis.

Souper Bowl of Caring

Held annually during the week leading up to the Super Bowl, the Chiefs are a national sponsor of the Souper Bowl of Caring hunger relief program. Chiefs Community Caring Team members kick off the initiative at Harvesters each season, and their efforts have resulted in more than 100,000 meals being distributed locally. for more information, click here.

Lift Up America

The chiefs and Lift Up America have joined force for the past nine years to feed our community. Each year, 60 area relief organizations receive 30,000 pounds of high protein food. Click here for more information.

Thanksgiving Food Distribution

Since 1992, Chiefs players, coaches and front office staff have collected funds in support of the annual Chiefs Thanksgiving food Distribution. In that time, more than 18,200 families have been fed as a result of this initiative.

Read Across America

2014 marked the 16th year that the Kansas City Chiefs Community Caring Team participated in Read Across America Day. First celebrated in 1998, the event coincided with the 108th birthday of famed children’s author, Theodor “Dr. Seuss” Geisel. This is now a year-round initiative for the Chiefs. The nationwide program is sponsored by the National Education Association and encourages all adults to promote reading among children. For more information on this initiative, click here.

Operation Breakthrough Adopt-A-Family

As a result, the Red and Gold assists more than 50 of the center's families, including nearly 175 children in 2013, that otherwise would not be able to share a traditional holiday as a family unit.
