(WISH) — Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are helping kids in need with a generous donation.
The couple is providing a year’s worth of food to Jacksboro Elementary School in Tennessee.
Lopez and Rodriguez learned of the school’s need after a teacher shared an emotional post on Facebook about a hungry child.
The teacher wrote about how school staff members pooled their money to help.
A food pantry at the school was formed after the story went viral.
Lopez and her fiance decided to add to the outpouring of support with a gift of their own. The pair said on Instagram that the story brought tears to their eyes.
She and Rodriguez are part owners in the home-cooked meal supply company “Tiller and Hatch” and partnered with them to provide the meals.
Lopez, whose mother was a teacher, said giving back to the students was her favorite moment of the month.
