Travis Kelce, the Kansas City Chiefs’ tight end, is a busy guy. Not only did he help lead the Chiefs to their sixth consecutive AFC championship game and work on various endorsement agreements this year, but he also made time to aid the community before of the conference championship game.
Kelce & Kodiak, a health food company, gave 25,000 hot breakfast dishes to Kansas City youngsters this week as part of Operation Breakthrough, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Chiefs’ TE Travis Kelce and Kodiak brand have come together to donate 25,000 meals to the children of Kansas City. Through Operation Breakthrough, an afterschool program for under-resourced youth, hundreds of families will receive hot breakfasts, via Kelce and Kodiak.

It’s hard to imagine Kelce has had time to pursue so many interests outside of football when he’s been so good on the field this season alongside quarterback Patrick Mahomes, but he’s managed to do so while dating celebrity singer Taylor Swift.
With the AFC championship game approaching, Kelce’s major emphasis will be on making it to the Super Bowl. The Chiefs won two titles, including this year’s Lombardi Trophy and one in 2019, although they failed to win their second Super Bowl participation in 2020, losing to the Tampa Bay Bucs.
They’ll have to defeat the No. 1-seeded Baltimore Ravens, who have shown to be one of the most fearsome teams in the NFL, boasting the league’s best defense. Kansas City has already defeated two hot offensive teams this playoffs, the Miami Dolphins and the Buffalo Bills, but the Ravens provide a completely different threat, with MVP contender Lamar Jackson at quarterback.
Kelce will play a critical part in the Chiefs’ success or failure on Sunday, but his off-field contributions will not be forgotten by fans.
