Oprah Winfrey will kick off Project Angel Food’s third annual Lead with Love two-hour television special, Lead with Love 3 Presented by City National Bank, airing live on KTLA 5, Saturday, July 23, 2022.
Executive Producer Brad Bessey said, “Oprah delivers a powerful opening to our show, encouraging us all to rise to the challenge of our current moment through compassion and empathy that has a lasting impact on our community.”
The growing list of celebrities joining hosts Eric McCormack and Jessica Holmes include Josh Groban, Sharon Stone, Whoopi Goldberg, Bryce Dallas Howard, Eugene Levy, Paula Abdul, Fran Drescher, Gloria Estefan, Beth Hall, Sean Hayes, Karamo Brown, Rachel Lindsay, Lori Loughlin, Ross Mathews, Pauley Perrette, Melissa Peterman, Danny Pino, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Nicole Sullivan, Holland Taylor, and a Charlie’s Angels reunion with Jaclyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd.

Loni Love and Alec Mapa return as co-hosts.
“While this year’s show will be a jam-packed, entertaining, two hours of celebrity, music, comedy and heartwarming profiles of our clients and our work; we can’t lose sight of our goal – to raise one million dollars in just one night,” said Richard Ayoub, Executive Producer, and CEO of Project Angel Food. “Because of increasing demand, and skyrocketing fuel and food costs; it costs us one million dollars more to serve L.A.’s critically ill this year than it did last year. We are trusting the sponsorships and donations made by viewers during Lead with Love 3 to bridge that gap.” Since premiering in June 2020, Lead with Love has raised $2 million for Project Angel Food’s vital work of feeding critically ill men, women, and children in Los Angeles County.
The organization prepares and delivers more than 1.2 million Medically Tailored Meals each year. Lead with Love has been renewed by KTLA and City National Bank through 2024. Lead with Love 2021 is nominated for a Los Angeles Area Emmy Award, which will be announced on Saturday, July 23, while Lead with Love 3 is live on the air.
On this show, Lisa Foxx talks to Project Angel Food CEO Richard Ayoub and the organization and how folks can get involved. They are always in need of volunteers in the kitchen to prepare the meals AND delivery drivers to help deliver meals to their clients in need. They also discussed how one can become a client by applying online. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness and are unable to independently access healthy food, our free home-https://www.angelfood.org/delivered meal program may be the help you need.
