She’s teaming up with Philabundance to hand out 240,000 meal kits to 5,000 families across the city.

“It is especially urgent now,” Philabundance’s CEO Loree D. Jones said in a statement, “because of the impact the pandemic has had on both the availability and quality of food for so many in the Philadelphia region — especially children.”
