Sporting Kansas City announces SportingStyle community campaign in support of Harvesters


Sporting Kansas City announced on Thursday a new community campaign in which a portion of proceeds from all scarf and beanie sales at SportingStyle stores on home matchdays in March, April and May will benefit Harvesters to support food insecure families in the region.

”Sporting KC is thrilled to announce our partnership with Harvesters this year, dedicated to fostering equitable access to nutritious food within our communities,” said Sporting Kansas City Director of Community Impact Chioma Atanmo. “With our passionate fanbase committed to giving back, this collaboration with SportingStyle retail locations amplifies our impact and our efforts towards this vital cause.”

Sporting Kansas City has supported Harvesters for more than 25 years, including food drives at Children’s Mercy Park and a KC As One campaign during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the KC Cauldron and South Stand SC supporters groups have volunteered at Harvesters and collected donations to provide meals for hungry families, children and seniors across the metropolitan area.

A food bank serving 26 counties across the entire Kansas City region, Harvesters provides food and related household products to more than 760 nonprofit agencies including emergency food pantries, community kitchens, homeless shelters, children’s homes and others.

In fiscal year 2023, Harvesters collected and distributed more than 63 million pounds of food and provided over 56 million meals. An average of 8,152 children were fed each week during the 2022-23 school year through the BackSnack Program, which operates in 270 schools in 90 districts, and 4,764 boxes of food were distributed to seniors every month through the federal Commodity Supplemental Food Program.
