Bradley Beal and Jayson Tatum have teamed up to provide meals for the Boston and St. Louis areas amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Beal and Tatum are both natives of St. Louis.

The Jayson Tatum Foundation is partnering with Feeding America and Lineage Logistics on their “Share A Meal” campaign.

The foundation and Lineage Logistics plan to match $250,000 in the Boston Area, as well as another $250,000 with Tatum’s good friend Beal to support their hometown of St. Louis.

Tatum and Beal will help provide meals through Feeding America, St. Louis Area Foodbank and The Greater Boston Food Bank.

Tatum also asks that others chip in to help in whatever way they can in difficult times like these.

As this virus continues to spread, the future has never felt so unpredictable.  And while I sincerely pray that everyone is staying safe, healthy and social distancing, the reality is this virus has negatively impacted our families, loved ones and communities in so many ways.  Because of the hardships created through this national health crisis and in an effort to help those in need in the Boston and St. Louis area, I am, through The Jayson Tatum Foundation, partnering with @feedingamerica and @lineagelogistics on their “Share A Meal” campaign.  Together, @lineagelogistics and The Jayson Tatum Foundation are pledging to match $250,000 in the Boston area and, with my good friend and fellow basketball player Bradley Beal, $250,000 in the St. Louis area, to help provide meals through @feedingamerica, @stlfoodbank and @gr8bosfoodbank.  This campaign will help some of the hardest hit communities in Boston and in Brad and my hometown of St. Louis, receive meals.  If you are able to help, I am asking my family, friends,  fans and partners to follow the link in my bio to help make a difference in our communities during a very difficult time. I would especially like to thank all the frontline workers and volunteers who are working around the clock to keep all of us safe and healthy. Together…. we will make a difference. #NBATogether #ActsOfCaring
