What's Happening:

  • Warner Bros. Television is donating 150,000 meals to Feeding America.
  • Together with the donation, the show’s Think Outside the (Lunch) Box campaign wants to raise awareness about food needs with a week-long series on social media.
  • From April 11th through April 15th, Warner Bros. TV will be partnering with influencer chefs Eitan Bernath and Ahmad Alzahbi to create lunch box meals while discussing the impacts of food insecurity.
