Over the weekend, the Chiefs, along with Farmland Foods and HyVee, kicked-off the Chiefs Kingdom Food Drive, which will be benefitting Harvesters Community Food Network.
All of the donations will be helping those in need in the Kansas City area during the holiday season. Last year, with Chiefs fans help, nearly 100,000 meals were provided through the food drive.
"This is something we've done for many years, but this year, we want to make this the most successful Chiefs Kingdom Food Drive yet," Mark Donovan, team president, said. "Our goal is to generate over 150,000 meals, which will be the largest food drive ever in the NFL. We need the Chiefs Kingdom to come together, support this food drive and support the community."
Fans can donate in a number of ways, such as the virtual food drive, which can be found at kcchiefs.com/fooddrive, or through text-to-give. Text CHIEFS to 31996.
If you are attending the next Chiefs home game on November 30th, bring non-perishable food items and volunteers from Farmland, Harvesters and members of the Chiefs Women's Organization will be accepting donations at bins located outside Arrowhead Stadium gates. The Hunt Family Foundation 50/50 Raffle at the Sunday Night Football game will also benefit Harvesters.
