Duke and Duchess of Sussex resume in-person charitable work volunteering at Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles
Meghan and Prince Harry have resumed in
person charitable visits. Both of them helped out by preparing food at
Industries Organization location in Los Angeles as part of the #FeedHOPE campaign. The campaign provides meals to food-insecure seniors and youth across Los Angeles, resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic.
Per their website, Homeboy Industries is
the largest gang rehabilitation and re-entry program in the world. For over 30
years, they have stood as a beacon of hope in Los Angeles to provide training
and support to formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and
women, allowing them to redirect their lives and become contributing members of
