Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped out on Wednesday, April 15, 2020 to serve their community in food distribution.
Dressed in jeans and masks, the couple helped to distribute meals for Project Angel Food, a non-profit charity that cooks and delivers food to those who are at greater risk during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The news of the pair’s charitable gesture was confirmed by PEOPLE and Richard Ayoub, Project Angel Food’s executive director said to the news outlet:
“They actually did two deliveries for us — one on Easter Sunday and one on Wednesday — and they’ve done it quietly. We’re completely honored.”
They were extremely down to earth and genuinely interested in every single person they met,” Ayoub continues. “They engaged with our chefs, they engaged with clients — they just wanted to make sure that people felt the love and appreciation. Their goal was really to just honor our chefs and staffs and volunteers by being of service.
What Meghan said is she wanted to show Harry Los Angeles through the eyes of philanthropy. It’s just beautiful. There’s obviously a great deal of love and selflessness between them. They both are individuals who want to know about others. Our clients are clients who are often forgotten. They really wanted to go visit these people. They wanted to see them and talk to them and hopefully put a smile on their faces.”
Ayoub disclosed that Meghan was aware of Project Angel Food from when she previously resided in L.A. and wanted to lend a helping hand.
“She said she wanted to do something to give back on Easter and was talking to her mom [Doria Ragland] and her mom told her that Project Angel Food needs help and Meghan said, ‘Yes, brilliant.’
“They really wanted to ease the workload of our drivers because they deliver to between 50 and 60 people a day,” he adds. “Meghan and Harry took about six deliveries last Sunday and then they said, ‘We want to do it again and we want more,’ so they took 14 deliveries on Wednesday.”
