Previously announced celebrities include Melissa Rivers, Kate Flannery, Rachel Harris, Rebecca Metz, Chef Stuart O’Keefe & Amy Phillips, Juan Pablo Di Pace, Peter Porte, Lauren Tom, Sasha Ruiz, Michael Corbett, Jeffrey Drew & filmmaker Zeberiah Newman from the award-winning documentary Right to Try, Variety’s Marc Malkin, Mary-Margaret Humes, Mercedes Javid, Michael Hitchcock, Tim Bagley, Lawrence Zarian, and Gregory Zarian, along with Amazing Race winners Laura Pierson (season 26), and Will Jardell & James Wallington (season 32), and beauty entrepreneur, television personality and producer Diana Madison, and influencer Harry Jowsey. Jesse Tyler Ferguson and husband Justin Mikita will also deliver meals the week of Thanksgiving.

Delivery volunteers will do contactless, “drive-by” pick-up of the meals they will distribute to Project Angel Food clients. Meals include roasted turkey, root vegetables, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, and a slice of pumpkin cheesecake. Vegetarian meals are also provided. The meal is sponsored by the Stanley and Joyce Black Family Foundation, with Glamazon (Amazon’s affinity group for the LGBT+ community), and 94.7 The Wave sponsoring the day. 94.7 The Wave will broadcast live from the Project Angel Food kitchen all morning long.
