Donna Kelce, the mother of Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, is known for her famous chocolate chip cookies. A small business in the Kansas City area created a mug that said “It’s Mama Kelce’s world and we’re just living in it” which caught the attention of Donna Kelce, 71. The mug actually features the entire recipe and directions for Donna Kelce’s cookie recipe and sells for about $18.
In response to Donna’s purchase, the owner of the small business, Annie Stowe from Annie’s Barn, reached out to Donna and asked if she could put her cookie recipe on a mug and donate $5 per mug sold to pay off elementary school lunch debt. Enough mugs were sold to pay off about $2,000 toward lunch debt at a school in the Kansas City metro area. When asked about her motivation behind this gesture, Stowe said “When the Chiefs do well, I do well and this is my little way to give back”.
Donna Kelce’s cookies became well known after she made them for her sons before they met in Super Bowl LVII in February 2023. If you are interested in a mug featuring her recipe and helping elementary school children with their lunch debt, you can visit Annie’s Barn’s website.
Stowe had also reached out to Donna asking if she would like to deliver checks directly to the school but so far has not heard back from her. As of now, Donna is currently in Las Vegas for Super Bowl LVIII watching her son Travis play alongside the Kansas City Chiefs against San Francisco 49ers.
