Eva Longoria delivers meals in San Antonio following deadly winter storms
Actor Eva Longoria delivered meals and water with charities in San Antonio, Texas, this week after the deadly winter storms that rocked the Lone Star State.
“We’re getting some meals ready to deliver to some homebound folks here that need food after this horrible disaster that happened in Texas,” Longoria shared on her Instagram story Monday alongside bags of prepared meals from the organization World Central Kitchen, founded by celebrity chef José Andres.
Longoria, a native of Corpus Christi, shared videos of herself and other organizers moving bags and boxes of food from World Central Kitchen and the San Antonio Food Bank.
The Texas native also shared clips of herself and organizers delivering meals to families in San Antonio, including several with small children. One family said they were without water for four days during the storm.
World Central Kitchen on Tuesday tweeted a clip of the actor preparing meals.

Longoria this week also joined San Antonio Food Bank CEO Eric Cooper to hand out food and Water, CBS Austin reported.
Michael G. Guerra, the San Antonio Food Bank’s chief resource officer, said in a Monday statement that Longoria “being in town is exactly what we need to bring some warmth after our winter storm,” My San Antonio reported.
More than two dozen people died and millions were without power and water as major winter storms swept across Texas last week.
