*Several celebrities have stepped up to help feed the hungry over the Thanksgiving holiday.
“The Real” co-host and radio personality Loni Love joined a growing list of celebrities working with Project Angel Food’s 200 volunteers and staff to deliver 2,000 traditional turkey dinners to critically ill men, women, children, and their caregivers throughout Los Angeles County on Thanksgiving 2021.
Volunteers will deliver contactless pick-ups of meals that include vegetarian options. Meals are sponsored by the Stanley and Joyce Black Family Foundation, Glamazon (Amazon’s affinity group for the LGBT+ community), and 94.7 The Wave, which will broadcast live from the Project Angel Food kitchen all morning long.
