Prince Harry and Meghan Cook For Less Privileged At #feedHOPE Program

4

On Wednesday, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry put on hairnets and facemasks and spent some time baking bread and cooking food as they spent time at Homeboy Industries, a social justice organisation. 

The community organisation aims to improve the lives of formerly incarcerated and previously gang-involved people in Los Angeles by offering them counselling, education, legal assistance, and addiction recovery support, among other services.

Prince Harry and Meghan joined some of the people of the organisation known as Homies in helping, working in the café and bakery as they prepared food for the #FeedHOPE program, which provides meals to food-insecure seniors and youth across Los Angeles in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The industry run by Father Greg Boyle, who worked closely with the Duchess’s former school, said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were just ‘Harry and Meghan’ to the homies. They rolled up their sleeves and deeply engaged with our workers in the Bakery and Café. It was immediate kinship and heartening in its mutuality.”

Manager of the Homegirl Café Mariana Enriquez agreed, added: “It was remarkable to share our Feed Hope program with Harry and Meghan today.  They are both down to earth and kind. The staff was honoured they took the time to see us, hear us and walk on our journey today. We will never forget it.”
