KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is once again making difference off the field.

15 and the Mahomies, an organization started by Mahomes, is providing 30,000 meals to the East Texas Food Bank in Tyler, Texas, where Mahomes was born and raised.

“The East Texas Food Bank is so grateful to our hometown hero Patrick Mahomes and the 15 and the Mahomies Foundation for their continued support of our hunger-relief work," East Texas Food Bank Chief Executive Officer, Dennis Cullinane, said. "Their recent donation will provide enough food for approximately 30,000 meals total, with 15,000 meals going to our two upcoming drive-thru distributions at Lindsey Park in Tyler."

The efforts by the organization hope to help people affected by last week's winter storm that devastated the state.

Many people in Texas are still recovering from the storm, which left millions without water and power.

The organization will hold food distribution events on Feb. 27 and March 5.
