Alongside Kodiak, a brand I love, we will be making a meaningful difference in the day-to-day life of hundreds of Kansas City kids, and I couldn’t be more excited to make this happen,” shared Travis via a press release.

It has previously contributed to the establishment of Operation Breakthrough’s Ignition Lab. Operation Breakthrough, dedicated to supporting families in Kansas City with childcare, after-school programs, and additional resources, will provide the children it serves with meals and various products, such as Kodiak’s classic Power Cakes, a variety of Oatmeal and Flapjack Power Cups, Breakfast and Granola Bars, and more.

“We are thrilled to work with Travis and an organization that is near and dear to his heart,” said Val Oswalt, CEO of Kodiak. “By providing nutritious breakfasts we are giving kids what they need to be set up for success, and ultimately pave the way for healthier futures.”

On Wednesday Patrick Mahomes stood in solidarity with Kelce’s business choices off the field, stating he hasn’t changed.

“Travis has always been Travis,” Mahomes told reporters. “It’s been cool to watch for me because he has all that attention, but he’s just been himself the whole time. He’s still Travis Kelce, He will still walk through the stadium and treat every single person like they’re his best friend. And he’s going to be like that in the locker room every single day. It hasn’t been any different.”
