"With each passing day of being locked down at home, my heart goes out to all those who have no home in this time of crisis. And so, this week Eve committed to providing meals for the poor who are without homes or jobs. I also have deep admiration for all those who are risking their lives by working on the frontlines. I have committed to providing meals to doctors and medical staff at hospitals."
