LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is receiving a generous donation from Los Angeles Rams stars Jared Goff and Andrew Whitworth.
Goff and Whitworth are donating $250,000 each to the food bank, it was announced Thursday.
"The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is on a mission to help fight the negative impacts of the coronavirus and I am humbled to team up with them to provide 1 million meals to our hurting community," Goff said on his social media platforms.
Whitworth reportedly signed a three-year deal with the Rams Wednesday, indicating the 38-year-old will spend the duration of his NFL career in the City of Angels.
With the combined $500,000 from Goff and Whitworth, the food bank will be able to provide 2 million meals.
