Angelina Jolie has donated one million dollars to fight child hunger during the coronavirus pandemic.

The actress and humanitarian pledged the sum to No Kid Hungry – which provides meals for low-income families across the US.

The charity says it’s already given money to 78 organisations across 30 states.

Jolie said: “As of this week, over a billion children are out of school worldwide because of closures linked to coronavirus.

“Many children depend on the care and nutrition they receive during school hours, including nearly 22 million children in America who rely on food support.

“No Kid Hungry is making resolute efforts to reach as many of those children as possible.”
