Meghan Markle has thrown her support behind Grenfell Tower survivors who have launched a campaign to feed Londoners during the coronavirus lockdown.
Meghan, 38, took part in a video conference last week with members of the Hubb Community Kitchen, which was set up in the wake of the Grenfell Tower disaster to feed survivors and their families.
From Monday, members of the Hubb Community Kitchen will cook between 250 and 300 meals a day, three days a week, in their own homes to be distributed to elderly and vulnerable people living in London.
Meghan praised the spirit of community and said she is ‘moved’ by the people donating money to make it happen, according to the Evening Standard.

She said: ‘The spirit of the Hubb Community Kitchen has always been one of caring, giving back and helping those in need, initially in Grenfell and now throughout the UK.
‘A home-cooked meal from one neighbour to another, when they need it most, is what community is all about.
‘I’m so proud of the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen, and the continued support The Felix Project gives them to carry out these acts of goodwill, which at this moment are urgently needed.’
It comes after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle delivered food to Los Angeles residents living with critical illnesses.
The couple, who moved to the city last month, volunteered with charity Project Angel Food on Easter Sunday and returned on Wednesday to drop-off non-perishable meals to 20 more vulnerable people in the city.
Speaking to ET Online , Project Angel Food’s executive director Richard Ayoub told how the couple contacted the charity after learning its drivers are ‘overloaded’ needed more support as they try and feed people during quarantine.
