The grantLOVE project and Oscar de la Renta team up to support Project Angel Food’s COVID-19 Emergency Food Fund

Los Angeles, CA -- March 19, 2020 -- The grantLOVE project is pleased to announce that we are teaming up with Oscar de la Renta to raise funds for Project Angel Food’s (PAF) COVID-19 Emergency Food Fund.

Project Angel Food’s Emergency Food Kits include three weeks of frozen and shelf-stable meals for all of their 1,600 clients. In the event a quarantine prevents PAF from delivering meals, it is essential that each of their clients have 3 weeks of emergency food supplies. Each Emergency Food Kit costs $93.75 so they need to raise $150,000 to guarantee that they can provide one for each and every client. 

Beginning today, the grantLOVE project is donating 100% of the profits from the sale of a series LOVE prints, inspired by Oscar de la Renta’s spring/summer 2020 collection, to PAF’s COVID-19 Emergency Food Fund. For every print sold, Project Angel Food is able to deliver another Emergency Food Kit to a client.

Project Angel Food is the first beneficiary of an ongoing collaboration between the grantLOVE project and Oscar de la Renta. Since 2010 artist Alexandra Grant and the grantLOVE project have been regular contributors to the Angel Art auctions, raising more than $110,000 for Project Angel Food. On March 12th we were to launch our first initiative — an exhibition of artworks by Alexandra curated by Yasmine Zodeh — at the Oscar de la Renta store on Melrose Place, but had to postpone because of COVID-19. We are thrilled that the collaboration has been able to pivot and respond quickly to our new circumstances. We also look forward to rescheduling the in-store event.

I knew during the AIDS crisis that with enough love, we would make it through. And we will make it through the coronavirus too. But it took a lot of love then, and it will take a lot of love now. I hope you’ll share your love with us.  -- Marianne Williamson, Founder of Project Angel Food
