Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camp is continuing to aid families through the Coronavirus pandemic. The organization has teamed up with ABC7 Los Angeles to distribute more than 4,500 Impossible patties to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.

According to Black Enterprise, over 100 cases of the plant-based burger patties were delivered to the food bank. The food will be distributed to three other locations in Southern California and go to families in low-income areas.

“Since our announcement of teaming up with Impossible Foods earlier this month, we continue to work toward our goal of helping to feed 1 million people together,” Know Your Rights Camp Community Outreach director Patricia Robinson said in a statement.

She added, “We are excited for this most recent collaboration with ABC7/KABC-TV Los Angeles. Know Your Rights Camp is happy to help provide relief and continue the fight against food insecurity to our most vulnerable communities in Southern California.”

Last month, Kaep’s organization announced their partnership with Impossible Foods. They plan to feed one million people this year who have been affected by COVID-19.

“We have a history of supporting the local food banks, this is part of our mission in the communities we serve,” said Cheryl Fair, president and general manager of KABC-TV Los Angeles.

“This year, the need is significantly greater; we are seeing more people experiencing food insecurity due to the pandemic,” she added. “That is why we are grateful to Colin Kaepernick and the Know Your Rights Camp, who share the same goal to reduce food insecurities and stepped up with a donation of carefully selected food that is a healthy alternative for communities who simply do not have access.”

Kaepernick’s charity also donated $1.75 million to minority communities to help fight the spread of COVID-19 and cover legal fees for those who were incarcerated from protesting following the death of George Floyd.
