During this time of no sports, no gatherings, no contact with others, can be very difficult on so many across the world. Those who have limited to no access of food, those who are unable to see families, across all ages both young and elderly. But, it has also been a time to spread love and support for one another.
Announced on Tuesday via Twitter, Russell Wilson and Ciara have partnered with a local Seattle food back decided to donate 1 million meals to those in need.
We want to encourage everyone out there to join us in whatever way they can, big or small. Everything makes a difference, everything that we do together makes a difference and together we will conquer this tough time we’re going through. — Ciara

Tagged in the tweet is ‘Feeding America,’ a site that directs you to your local food bank.
According to the website, The Feeding America nationwide network of food banks secures and distributes 4.3 billion meals each year through food pantries and meal programs throughout the United States and leads the nation to engage in the fight against hunger.
This is just one of the many generous acts that we have seen throughout this COVID-19 pandemic. Now more than ever these acts of kindness must continue.
Thank you Russell and Ciara!
