Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez Donate Year’s Worth of Food to Tennessee Elementary School

The lovely couple are making headlines once again for their generosity. They just announced that they’ll be providing an elementary school in Tennessee with food for an entire year!

It all started with a teacher at Jacksboro Elementary School—who posted to Facebook about a student at her school who did not have enough to eat. It was shared thousands of times and, as donations poured in, the school was able to set up a food pantry for students.

Lopez saw the story and said she and her fiance “knew we had to help.” Lopez, whose Mother was a teacher, shared on on Instagram—“it brought tears not just to my eyes, but Alex’s as well!”

“I don’t know if you guys know, but Alex and I are part owners in a company called Tiller & Hatch, and we decided to donate a years worth of of their yummy, healthy meals, for the students and their school’s food pantry,” she announced.

Mrs. Lopez closed by explaining that being able to help struggling kids like this “is why being a business owner, and having actual ownership in companies (not licensing), is so important to me and Alex, especially as Latinos.”

“It’s about showing our community, this is what life can be. You can take charge and take ownership,” she continued—we are happy to be in business with partners who also believe no child should EVER have to go to sleep hungry.”
