  • I don't know.

  • Welcome back to our Day of Hope Show.

  • Joining us now is Layla Ali.

  • A longtime supporter of feeding America.

  • She sits on their entertainment council and mobilizes the public in support of their mission to end hunger in America.

  • Layla, it is so great to see you today and talk a little bit about why it is so important for you to be a part of feeding America, especially right now.

  • For me is really about reaching out to, of course, my family, my friends.

  • You know, of course, we know you got to reach out to seniors.

  • Some of them can't just get to the store, get items that they need.

  • So I have neighbors and friends that I bought groceries for friends that I've written checks for, you know?

  • So I'm lucky to be in a situation to be able to help people in that way on just sometimes, just getting calling people.

  • I mean, I think about people who live alone, you know, are just in the house.

  • I mean, I have my two Children and my husband, which is amazing.

  • But not everybody has that, you know.

  • So you really have to call check on, you know your circle.

  • And everyone has to just do what they can right now.

  • And I also decided to give 100% of proceeds from my organic Leila Ali spice blends to feeding America because I just thought that was a great opportunity for me to help people live healthier.

  • You know, in terms of, you know, my spices, but also toe raise even more funds for feeding America.

  • That is awesome, Layla.

  • And you're right.

  • Everybody conduce something.

  • And I know your father, Mohammed Ali was obviously a great humanitarian.

  • How has he inspired you to do the same?

  • Oh, man, you know, we all new love my father, you know, as not only a boxer but the great humanitarian work that he did and for me watching him grow up.

  • I just remember him pulling over, you know, in his Rolls Royce and giving $100 bills that homeless people are just really going out of his way to put a smile on people's faces and, you know, try to leave this world a better place than it was when he came to it.

  • My father inspired me to give back in that way.

  • Well, you are certainly walking in his footsteps.

  • And we are very grateful that you're doing just that.

  • Layla Ali.

  • Thank you for your time.

  • And thank you for all that.

  • You D'oh!

  • I just wanted to say people go to feeding America, not Ord for more information or to donate.

  • That's right.

  • Great.

  • Thank you so much.

  • Have a wonderful and safe day.
