Meghan Markle breaks silence after LA move with food delivery idea (video)

Meghan Markle has spoken out for the first time since moving to LA as she chatted to women she worked with to launch a charity cookbook via video call.

She used Zoom to catch up with members of the Hubb Community Kitchen as she asked them to set up a food service to make sure vulnerable people in the Grenfell community don't go without during the coronavirus pandemic.

The new plan, which will launch next week with support from the The Felix Project, is part of the Evening Standard's Food for London Now appeal, which is raising cash to deliver food to poor and elderly people in the capital.

Meghan said: “The spirit of the Hubb Community Kitchen has always been one of caring, giving back and helping those in need, initially in Grenfell and now throughout the UK.

“A home-cooked meal from one neighbour to another, when they need it most, is what community is all about.

“I’m so proud of the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen, and the continued support The Felix Project gives them to carry out these acts of goodwill, which at this moment are urgently needed.

“I’m equally moved by the many people who are contributing to the Evening Standard’s campaign to raise money for these vital organisations in the wake of Covid-19.”

Meghan suggested the idea this week, and working with the Felix Project the volunteers will start batch cooking in their own homes and then delivering between 250 and 300 meals to families three days a week.
