A source close to the couple was quoted as saying, “To them, Homeboy is a perfect example of how empathy, kindness, and compassion can change the world.”
Homeboy Industries shared a posts of the couple on their Instagram saying: “Thank you to Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, for visiting and standing in kinship with our Café and Bakery teams yesterday!”.
Homeboy Industries went on to say, “ Our staff was thrilled to work alongside them as they helped prepare food and learned more about our newly launched #FeedHOPE program, which employs our program participants to provide meals to food-insecure seniors and youth across Los Angeles in the wake of the #Covid19 pandemic.”
Homeboy Industries, which was founded in 1986 by pastor Gregory Boyle, provides resources to former gang-involved men and women. The organization heavily focuses on education, counseling, job training, legal assistance and more.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were just “Harry and Meghan” to the homies. They rolled up their sleeves and deeply engaged with our workers in the Bakery and Café” said Father Greg Boyle.
