Apple officially launched the campaign America?s Food Fund on GoFundMe, in collaboration with several partners such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Laurene Powell Jobs and the Ford Foundation.
The America?s Food Fund project aims to provide food to those in need in the United States. Donations will go to the nonprofit organizations World Central Kitchen and Feeding America.
In the last episode of Oprah Talks Covid-19 available on Apple TV + in the United States, Oprah Winfrey explained in detail all the objectives of the project. She spoke via FaceTime with various partners involved. Winfrey also donated $ 1 million.
In presenting this initiative, Tim Cook said:
No one can live well if they do not have sufficient access to food, and we can only overcome this crisis if we make sure that everyone has the essentials they need to take care of themselves, from his family and the weakest people. World Central Kitchen and Feeding America are doing a tough job, and right now, if there is one lesson we need to learn, it is that we are stronger and less vulnerable when we support each other.
Currently, more than $ 12 million in donations have arrived on GoFundMe.
