KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One Kansas City-area school district has issued a Patrick Mahomes-inspired challenge in support of the Chiefs.
Kansas City, Kansas, Public Schools Superintendent Charles Foust issued the “Mahomes Ketchup Challenge” on Tuesday via social media.
How ‘bout those @Chiefs! We know @PatrickMahomes is #kckpsontrack and loves @HuntsChef ketchup and ketchup sandwiches, so @foustc is issuing the #MahomesKetchupChallenge to KC & @kckschools. Try it yourself, use the hashtag and tag us! pic.twitter.com/5jK3XBm3hd— Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools (@kckschools) January 22, 2020
Foust ate a ketchup sandwich then challenged others in the district to do the same and share videos on social media, including the hashtag #MahomesKetchupChallenge.
In less than 24 hours, New Stanley Elementary Schoolteachers accepted along with a classroom full of kindergarteners.

Staff at KCK Public Schools' central office also stepped up to the challenge.
How much do you love @PatrickMahomes and the @Chiefs? Enough to eat a ketchup sandwich?

The Chiefs quarterback’s love for the condiment became well-known after a 2018 ESPN interview in which he revealed that he puts it on steak as well as macaroni and cheese.
Mahomes also signed an endorsement deal with Hunt’s last year.
