The Dallas community is pulling together in the face of the coronavirus crisis, and all that good work did not go unnoticed by The Office star John Krasinski. The actor just started a new YouTube channel all about sharing good news, fittingly called “Some Good News with John Krasinski.”

In the second episode, before convening a Zoom reunion with the cast of “Hamilton,” Krasinski did a rundown of charitable acts from around the country, and Dallas’ Furlough Kitchen initiative to feed service industry pros impacted by COVID-19 got a shoutout.

Check it out below, as Krasinski shows screencaps of Furlough Kitchen’s social media feed. “In Dallas, a community nonprofit was started to offer hot meals to their furloughed service industry employees,” he says in the video, which so far has more than six million views.

Furlough Kitchen aims to provide 1,000 meals each day at their curbside pickup kitchen to anyone who has been furloughed/laid-off during the COVID-19 crisis, according to their website. The initiative is a project of Front Burner Restaurants and Dallas nonprofit CitySquare.
