Oprah Winfrey has announced that she is donating $10 million to help support the ongoing coronavirus relief efforts.
Winfrey shared that she is giving $1 million to support the America’s Food Fund launch but also says that she’s giving an additional $9 million to other food causes.
Winfrey discussed the initiative’s launch with Chef José Andrés and Feeding America CEO Claire Babineaux-Fontenot on the Apple TV+ series Oprah Talks COVID-19.
She video footage of the discussion to her Instagram, along with the caption:
“@chefjoseandres and Claire Babineaux-Fontenot have teamed up with @leonardodicaprio, Laurene Powell Jobs and @Apple to launch America’s Food Fund to help feed local communities. I was struck by the work these organizations are doing and while everyone’s priority right now is to stay safer at home, I know there are many of us looking for ways to help,” the caption reads.
“I believe that America’s Food Fund will be a powerful way to make a difference for our neighbors in need and am committing $1 million to this fund to support those facing food insecurity. I am donating $10 million overall to help Americans during this pandemic in cities across the country and in areas where I grew up.
