Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are helping others in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Monday, both Feeding America and Food Banks Canada shared that the stars pledged $500,000 to each organization in support of their COVID-19 Response Funds.

This is the second time the couple has donated.  They previously gave $500,000 to both organizations in 2020.

“When #COVID19 first hit in early 2020, @VanCityReynolds and @BlakeLively generously donated $500K (USD) to US sister organization @FeedingAmerica and to Food Banks Canada helping kickstart our COVID-19 Response Funds,” the organization wrote. “It was an act that inspired so many Canadians to donate to their local food banks and show their support to their neighbours during these critical times.”

“Our heartfelt thanks and gratitude ONCE AGAIN to Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively for pledging another $500K in support of our COVID-19 Response Funds! You continue to be not only our favourite Canadian, but also our favourite superhero 😉 (sorry, Hugh Jackman)”
