Hollywood Supports Project Angel Food To Help Vulnerable People During COVID-19 Pandemic

Hollywood has come together to support the Los Angeles based charity, Project Angel Food.

The organization “provides free meals to members of the community impacted by life-threatening illnesses.”

Along with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) and its $100,000 donation, numerous celebs have made their own contributions.

Canada’s own “Will & Grace” star Eric McCormack is a frequent volunteer with the group and recently shared his support.

“Such an amazing team @projectangelfood! If you’re in the LA area and you’ve got time to volunteer, they’d love your heart and your help,” he wrote.

“We can’t even begin to express how grateful we are for the donations and overwhelming support we’ve received in these past few weeks,” said Project Angel Food Executive Director, Richard Ayoub. “I want to sincerely thank anyone who has donated and voiced their support for our organization. Providing free meals to struggling members of our community is especially vital at this time. With these funds we’ll be able to feed even more people who really need our help.”

LINK IN BIO! First of all, I hope this finds you and your loved ones safe, fed, and in good health. A dear organization called Project Angel Food could really use your help. They provide medically tailored meals to over 1,600 at-risk people in Los Angeles, largely those living with compromised immune systems. As you may be aware, some the most vulnerable people we need to take extra care right now of are the elderly and immunocompromised. Because of COVID-19, Project Angel Food has had to cancel its fundraising events and is relying on the support of the community to keep their kitchen open and their mission going strong. I know things are uncertain for a lot of people right now, but $4.50 will cover a medically tailored meal for someone in need (the price of a cup of coffee!) and $93.75 will feed one person for THREE WEEKS. I hope you can join me in making a donation. Please visit: www.angelfood.org/covid19 or see LINK In BIO. More than anything, take care <3

Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:

Health officials caution against all international travel. Returning travellers are asked to self-isolate for 14 days in case they develop symptoms and to prevent spreading the virus to others.

Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.

To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out.
