Brooklyn Nets center DeAndre Jordan donated 200 meals to frontline workers in Los Angeles amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, per TMZ Sports.

Per Jordan's Instagram, the big man worked with Postmates and myCovidMD, which offered free COVID-19 testing via a drive-through pop-up site, to provide the meals to workers at Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital.

Harold & Belle's, which is reportedly one of Jordan's favorite Los Angeles restaurants, made the meals consisting of chicken creole and a personal favorite of Jordan's in veggie jambalaya.

His efforts to feed people go beyond his work Friday, as the big man also partnered with Beyond Meat to donate 1 million veggie burgers to those in need amid the COVID-19 shutdown, per CloseUp360.

Jordan's Los Angeles roots stem from his time with the Clippers, for whom he played from 2008 to 2018. He signed as a free agent with the Dallas Mavericks ahead of the 2018-19 season before finding his way to the New York Knicks via trade and then the Nets in free agency in 2019.

The 32-year-old excelled with the Nets thanks to 8.3 points and 10.0 rebounds in just 22.0 minutes per game. He was unable to join the Nets during their 2019-20 season restart in Disney World near Orlando, Florida, after testing positive for COVID-19.
