During the coronavirus pandemic, Davis has partnered with a cause that is close to her by working with "No Kid Hungry" to bring awareness to the hunger crisis.

The actress revealed that she had grown up in poverty, even sharing that she had been teased in school for her school lunches which made her want to get involved with the organization. She said:

"When all your money goes towards your rent, you don't have anything leftover or you never had it to begin with."

Together with Yvette Nicole Brown, her husband Julius Tennon, and a handful of others, the group camped out on Laurel Canyon Boulevard to show their support for the cause.
