The NFL has teamed up with Postmates as their official on-demand delivery partner for the 2020 NFL season. They’ll sponsor events such as the Super Bowl, Pro Bowl and 2021 NFL Draft.
As a way to kick off the NFL season and their new partnership with Postmates, Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans quarterbacks are doing something special. Both Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson have donated meals to frontline workers. Mahomes sent meals to Houston and Watson sent meals to Kansas City.
Mahomes’ foundation 15 and the Mahomies delivered meals from Cool Runnings Jamaican Grill to healthcare workers at the Ben Taub Hospital. Watson used Postmates to deliver meals from Niecies Restaurant to healthcare workers at Truman Medical Center.

This week I was able to partner with @Postmates to make a donation to the frontline workers at @TrumanMedKC in Kansas City. Big thanks to my favorite locally Black-owned, Niecies Restaurant, for providing them with some great food. Serve and spread love in every community! pic.twitter.com/jjRW01Yblj

“People across the country aren’t just ready to order their favorite gameday foods, they are eagerly awaiting the return of football. While most fans won’t be able to physically go to the game, this partnership with the NFL allows us to bring the gameday experience, and a few surprises throughout the season, directly to fans,” said Eric Edge, Postmates SVP for Marketing & Communications, in an NFL press release.
“Fans will be watching NFL football this season from their couch more than ever before, so teaming up with Postmates as the first official on-demand food delivery partner of the NFL was a perfect combination,” said Nana-Yaw Asamoah, Vice President of Business Development for the NFL. “We’re excited for Postmates to deliver gameday food favorites and special surprises to our fans’ doorsteps throughout the year.”
This is a pretty great show of solidarity from Mahomes, Watson and the NFL to support the healthcare workers in this country that continue to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a great touch of sportsmanship to have Mahomes send meals to Houston and Watson send meals to Kansas City.
