Leonardo DiCaprio Teams Up to Commit $12 Million to Launch America's Food Fund Amid Pandemic

Leonardo DiCaprio is helping out in a huge way.

The 45-year-old Titanic actor is joining Laurene Powell Jobs, Apple, and the Ford Foundation to launch America’s Food Fund with $12 million in response to the pandemic, Deadline reported Thursday (April 2).

The initiative will be hosted by GoFundMe, benefiting the World Central Kitchen (WCK) and Feeding America.

America’s Food Fund will “address the issue of food access in the United States and will provide funding relief to both organizations in furthering their missions to feed the country’s most vulnerable populations impacted by COVID-19, including children who rely on school lunch programs, low-income families, the elderly, and individuals facing job disruptions.”

“In the face of this crisis, organizations like World Central Kitchen and Feeding America have inspired us all with their unwavering commitment to feed the most vulnerable people in need. I thank them for their tireless work on the frontlines, they deserve all of our support,” Leonardo said.

Many stars are helping out amid the ongoing global health crisis – find out how.
