In an effort to help those who are food insecure in the United States during the coronavirus pandemic, Apple has joined forces with Laurene Powell Jobs, Leonardo Dicaprio, Oprah Winfrey, and Jeff Bezos to launch America's Food Fund.
Laurene Powell Jobs says that job losses and schools being closed are leading to many families wondering how to put food on the table and that America's Food Fund will help solve that problem.
America's Food Fund will fundraise money to be donated to two nonprofit organizations - the World Central Kitchen and Feeding America. Tim Cook says that both organizations do "heroic work", and that it is important that we support one another during a time when people are struggling to have the essentials.
If you'd like to donate to America's Food Fund, you can do so on GoFundMe.
