Superstar Russell Wilson Gets Cooking to Help Fight Food Insecurity

By United Way of King County Posted on November 30, 2020 In Covid-19, News

In partnership with United Way of King County and Safeway, the Seahawks’ Russell Wilson has unveiled an exclusive #LetRussCook apron to help families struggling with food insecurity because of COVID-19.

The aprons, designed by local Seattle artist Enjoli Izidor, will be sold at Safeway and Albertson’s stores. All proceeds from the aprons will benefit United Way of King County’s program to deliver food to families in need through a partnership with DoorDash and its team of drivers.

Under this partnership, DoorDash drivers deliver food to people who cannot go to food banks or other food distribution points.

In the video below, Wilson explains how the program works and how teamwork helps distribute food to more than 2,000 households in the region.

The aprons will also be sold online at the Betz Family Winery.

My daughter gave me this apron for Christmas and it is the best ever. Living in VA did not know King County, United Way along with Russell Wilson had teamed up to enable people access food during this pandemic through the sale of this item. Have been a life time Seahawks fan and this only confirms the commitment of Russell Wilson and Seahawks to support the community. Thank you Safeway and everyone associated with the endeavor. May 2021 bring good things to all.
