Prince Harry and Meghan are known to contribute to charity even before the coronavirus hit worldwide. Since COVID-19 became a worldwide concern, they have done the little they can to help alleviate the problems posed by the pandemic.
The most critical and perhaps most pressing problem is hunger as people that are self-quarantined to prevent the spread of the coronavirus lack food and other primary supplies.
When Harry and Meghan heard that the Project Angel Food charity drivers were overwhelmed and needed more hands, they contacted the Los Angeles charity.
There, they were assigned to deliver food to about 20 different homes of people that suffered life-threatening diseases and are, therefore, most vulnerable to the disease.
💙💙💙 #Repost @curtisleejamie @download.ins — The great part about fame, be it earned or inherited, is the ability to take a public’s interest in the minutia of a famous person’s daily life and turn it into advocacy and support for wonderful institutions. Certainly that was the case when the Duke and Duchess delivered meals on Easter for my good friend @richardayoub and the organization that he runs @projectangelfood with passion, tenacity, intelligence and hope. Project Angel Food delivers meals to their constituents all over the city of Los Angeles. EVERY DAY. The volunteers who show up EVERY DAY and package food and the drivers who deliver them and the staff that keeps the whole thing running are all HEROES. I include the Duke and Duchess while they delivered food they shone their light on a truly important and noble mission and helped immeasurably. I welcome them to my hometown and the Project Angel Food family. If you go to my bio I tell a story to @daniwriter, on her new podcast, about almost meeting Prince Harry’s mother and the impact she had on me and the world.
Project Angel Food's executive director Richard About whom the couple had spoken to expressed great admiration for the couple who had also helped them out during Easter.
"They told us they heard our drivers were overloaded and wanted to volunteer to lighten the drivers' workload."
Ayoub further disclosed that the couple made no contact with the beneficiaries while making the deliveries about town.
The new reports establish that Project Angel Food, which serves about 2000 meals every day during the pandemic, is the very first charity project that the couple will be supporting since their big move to Los Angeles from Canada.
Their efforts haven't gone unnoticed with many people praising them for their selfless charity despite the risk of contracting the disease.
