Janelle Monae Gives Away 10,000 Lunches To Those In Need During #Wondalunch Drive

Janelle Monae has her hands full of sacks of food while participating in the Wondalunch Los Angeles Drive-Thru event at Crozier Middle School in Inglewood, Calif., on Friday (May 29).

The 34-year-old singer and actress teamed up with rapper and actor Jidenna, attorney and political commentator Angela Rye, and congresswoman Maxine Waters to hand out free meals to those in need, in a partnership with hunger nonprofit Project Isaiah.

“Some people who are working may want to save their money because they don’t know when they may be laid off,” Janelle shared in an interview about the giveaway. “This is an opportunity to give back to the community, to feed families, to hopefully release some stress.”

Anything left over from the drive, which catered 10,000 lunches, was given to homeless shelters.
