Earlier this week, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively donated $1 million to food banks amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are honored and privileged to be able to continue our support of Feeding America and Food Banks Canada,” said a statement from Ryan and Blake. “We know the struggles of so many of our neighbors faced last year are not over and we are grateful for the opportunity to help facilitate the important work of food banks across the US and Canada to be able to provide nourishing meals to the people in need.”
Food Bank Canada’s announcement was delivered with a sense of humor, poking fun at actor Hugh Jackman, who has a longstanding, playful rivalry with Ryan Reynolds.
“You continue to be not only our favourite Canadian, but also our favourite superhero (sorry, Hugh Jackman),” they tweeted.
This donation comes three months after Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively donated $500,000 to the same organizations in November 2020.
