Leonardo DiCaprio, Laurene Powell Jobs, Apple, and the Ford Foundation have launched 'America's Food Fund', a GoFundMe fundraiser that aims to ensure all people have reliable access to food during this trying time.

We recognize that food insecurity in America is growing at a rapid pace. America’s Food Fund will launch with World Central Kitchen and Feeding America as its first two beneficiaries. As we continue to monitor and map food gaps, we will partner with additional organizations and businesses that are helping to meet the need.

DiCaprio, Powell Jobs and Apple have seeded the fundraiser with $12 million dollars.

“On behalf of Feeding America, I would like to thank Leonardo DiCaprio, Laurene Powell Jobs, and Tim Cook for their generosity and support, which will help our network of food banks provide food and other resources to communities impacted by this crisis,” said Claire Babineaux-Fontenot, CEO of Feeding America. "Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, 37 million people in this country did not have consistent access to nutritious meals – including 11 million children and 5.5 million seniors. These numbers are quickly rising, and it is critical that we rally together as a nation to support our neighbors during this time of great need.”

The fundraiser is up to $12,439,300 raised of its $15,000,000 goal and Oprah has just committed an additional $1 million to the fund.
