Wondering what the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been up to lately? Well, quite a bit actually!

They’ve been volunteering at various charities,  hosting inspiring video conference calls with a number of organisations they work with and this week, they’ve been preparing meals for youth and seniors in Los Angeles who are struggling during the coronavirus pandemic.

It’s all part of a program called #FeedHOPE run by Homeboy Industries, an organisation that helps to rehabilitate and support former gang members.

Harry and Meghan were able to work in the kitchen alongside men and women who are “seeking to transform their lives after gang-involvement and incarceration,” the organisation explains in a social media post.

The meals they prepare are then delivered to vulnerable communities in L.A.

During their time in the kitchen, Harry and Meghan were also able to learn about all the great work the organisation is doing to break the cycle of violence by helping former gang members get back on their feet through job training and free services such as “tattoo removal , mental health services, GED classes, legal services and more.”

Check out some photos of their day below:
