Ben Affleck called on his fan base to donate food materials to "Feeding America" so that those who do not have and rely on others can survive amid coronavirus.


Coronavirus is still spreading and affecting many. While some are panicking, others are looking for ways to ease the effects.

Benjamin Géza Affleck-Boldt, professionally known as Ben Affleck, is one of those trying to make a difference at this time. He recently made a call to his fans to donate food to help those who are in need.

The 47-year-old "Batman" actor made the call via his Instagram page to his fans and followers, asking them to donate whatever they can to help others.

The call came on Sunday with the "The Way Back" actor providing a link in his bio where people can donate to "Feeding America."


The three times Golden Globe award winner stressed the need for such donations saying people are losing access to meals.

"Feeding America" is an American based organization that manages a network of food banks scattered across the country.

Citing the organization's website, "People" explained that the NGO's mission is to provide meals to United States residences who do not have any.

She described the unseriousness as "incredibly dangerous and selfish."


The website claimed they work with farmers, manufacturers, and retailers to get nourishing food to those who need them badly. They are also working to create "a path to a brighter, food-secure future."

Affleck is not the only star to canvass for support as coronavirus continues to spread throughout the world. Talyor Swift also expressed concerns that people were not taking the issue seriously. She said,

"This is the time to cancel plans, actually, truly isolate as much as you can, and don't assume that because you don't feel sick that you aren't possibly passing something..."


The country singer told her fans that she was expressing concern because she loved them. The "Bad Blood" performer asked her followers to make social sacrifices to prevent the spread of the disease.

Ariana Grande also took to her twitter page to rebuke those who were not taking the issue seriously. She described the unseriousness as "incredibly dangerous and selfish."

In another tweet, the singer explained she did not mean to insult anyone, saying she understood certain people had to keep up with work obligations.

Still, she stressed that people needed to understand the situation was "a pandemic of global proportion." Lady Gaga also joined the music stars in reaching out to the public, urging everyone to practice kindness.
