Taylor Swift has been busy in Kansas City: The Grammy Award-winning star recently made a “significant donation” to a Kansas City food bank.
Harvesters Community Food Network shared in a social media post in July that Swift, 33, made a generous donation to the food bank.
“It won’t be a #cruel summer for thousands of families, children and seniors experiencing food insecurity thanks to the generous donation we received from the award-winning singer,” the food bank wrote on Facebook at the time.
Although Swift donated over the summer, the post flew under the radar. The news has now resurfaced as Swift continues to steal the show at Kansas City Chiefs games.
“We were quite surprised,” said Sarah Biles, director of communications for the food bank The Kansas City Star in an interview published this week.
The food bank has been asked not to share the donation total. But in some ways, Biles said Swift raising awareness about hunger has almost as much impact as the donation itself.
“Overall, this is a significant contribution to hunger relief, and it’s so heartening to see her choose a cause like this,” Biles said.
Swift was spotted arriving at the Chiefs game against the Denver Broncos on Thursday to watch the Chiefs tight end. Travis Kelce and his teammates. The singer cheered on the Chiefs in a black dress and red varsity jacket a day after attending the premiere of her movie ‘Eras Tour’.
Prior to her arrival on game day, Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas he welcomed Swift back to town in a social media post Thursday morning.

Swift started the game in high spirits. The singer was seen chatting with Kelce’s mother, Donna, as well as making a kissy face for the camera for a photo with the young female onlooker.
Swift and Kelce caused quite a stir with their first public appearance together on September 24 when Kelce played against the Chicago Bears. The “Lavender Haze” singer sat in the suite with Donna Kelce and cheered him on to a 41-10 victory.
The game was the most-watched game of the week, drawing 24.3 million viewers and ranking first among women 12-49.
