Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are such a great Hollywood couple. They stay under the radar and live their lives and – what do ya know – it actually works for them! They’ve been together for about 26 years now, which is no small feat. If that didn’t make them awesome enough, they’re both super involved with charity and do a lot of work for the Food Bank of NYC in Harlem, where they recently turned up to help prepare 1,000 meals for people in need in the city this Thanksgiving.
Here’s People‘s report:
Sedgwick and Bacon, who are actively involved in the food bank, say the cause is close to their hearts—and home. “We only live a few blocks from here and the idea that we have so much and there’s 1 out of 5 people in New York using food bank services is kind of staggering,” Bacon told PEOPLE.
With new challenges following government funding cuts that cost the city the equivalent of 76 million meals, Sedgwick says that Thanksgiving won’t be the same for many. “I remember coming here last year and things were rough and they were really struggling to feed the amount of people that were coming in,” she said. “I can only imagine this year, it must be a devastating loss.”
Before strapping on their chef’s hats and aprons, the couple also talked about their own Thanksgiving plans: They will once again be hosting both of their families, which has become an annual tradition.
“We have a great Bacon family Thanksgiving, we’ve been doing it forever,” said Sedgwick.
As for the meal, she admitted that she’s partial to dark turkey meat and gushed about her love of vegetables. “I heard that you don’t start enjoying Brussels sprouts until you’re an adult and let me say that’s one of the good things about getting older,” she said.
Love them! And now I’m hungry.
