BOSTON (CBS) — Tom Brady hopes to feed Tampa Bay receivers plenty of touchdown passes this fall. But until then, he’s doing his part to help his new community during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Brady bunch has already moved down to Florida, and Brady and wife Gisele Bundchen have already ingratiated themselves with the region by donating 750,000 meals to Feeding Tampa Bay, the food bank announced on its Facebook page Wednesday afternoon.READ MORE: I-Team: High School Failure Rates In Massachusetts Jumped During Pandemic

Earlier this week, Brady announced on his Twitter feed that he was partnering with the private airline Wheels Up to supply 10 million meals to Feeding America.
Last week the Greater Boston Food Bank confirmed that Tom and Gisele contributed enough money for 750,000 meals. Brady has a long-standing relationship with the Food Bank, even featuring them on his cleats during the NFL’s “My Cleats, My Cause” initiative in 2017.MORE NEWS: 'I Don't Want To Be A Vigilante': Mikayla Miller's Mother Demands Justice At Hopkinton Rally
