Cardi B is helping New York City’s overburdened health care workers stay nourished during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Bronx-born star donated 20,000 bottles of the plant-based vegan supplement OWYN to local hospitals. TMZ reports the aid is aimed at helping medical professionals and ambulance crews, many of whom often fail to eat during 12-hour (or longer) shifts.
OWYN is an abbreviation of “Only What You Need.” The vegan supplement drink is 100 percent plant-based and non-GMO as well as gluten-free, soy-free and dairy-free. It’s also made with allergen-free ingredients and without any artificial additives.
Last week, Cardi openly questioned her own food choices after stomach pains forced her to make an emergency hospital visit. During an Instagram Live session, she revealed her publicist confirmed it wasn’t coronavirus-related.
“Today my publicist hit me up like, ‘Oh, I just wanted to tell you like ain’t nothing coronavirus-related or something,” she said during the stream. “Thank God.”
Other members of the Hip Hop community haven’t been so lucky. Scarface, Slim Thug and Cardi’s producer Andrew Watt are among those who’ve tested positive for COVID-19.
