A pair of high-profile delivery people have been making stops around West Hollywood this week, handing out free meals to charity recipients. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle–sporting jeans and face-masks–have been dropping off food to some of the critically ill individuals served by the Marianne Williamson-founded Project Angel Food.
“I thought that tall red-headed guy looked pretty familiar, and that girl was very pretty. Then I saw the large black SUVs with the security guards behind them,” Dan Tyrell told WeHoVille of his surprise visitors. “If they had given me the heads up, I would have worn my tiara!”
Project Angel Food, which has offered meals-on-wheels to people with HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other illnesses since 1989, has continued making deliveries during the COVID-19 pandemic, but has struggled to balance a surge in demand for meals by at-risk, housebound patients with a drop in volunteers and fundraising.
The famous couple decided to lend a hand–though, Project Angel Food executive director Richard Ayoub notes, the original idea was to keep their involvement low key and not make a public announcement.
“They wanted to help us relieve some of the drivers from their workload,” Ayoub told WeHoVille. “We loved having them and they are the most down-to-earth people.”
