A UK based foundation that offers cooking classes led by refugees asylum seekers and migrants—announced on Twitter that The Royal Foundation had donated £8,000 on behalf of Meghan Markle. They said: “We are immensely grateful for this donation which will go towards supporting the Migrateful mission.” The name of the charity is Migrateful and according to its website their mission is to “empower and celebrate refugees”.
It’s also a place for “vulnerable migrants on their journey to integration, by supporting them to run their own cookery classes”.
The Duchess has already worked with a culinary-based charity before.
However, cooking is one of the passions she holds dearest, so she has managed to find ways to work that into her charitable work as well.
It is a philanthropic move that Meghan been looking to make since joining the Royal Family.
In 2018, Meghan’s first solo charity project as the Duchess of Sussex involved writing the forward for a cookbook called Together.
It managed to raise funds for the Hubb Community Kitchen.

It was after that when they started developing their new organisation, Archewell.
They’ve been working hard whilst in lockdown to get projects off the ground, attending a number of video calls and making speeches about the subjects that mean the most to them.
In the meantime, COVID-19 has forced the pair to postpone their launch date.
The Telegraph reported in June that: “Sources said the couple were responding to current affairs, redirecting their efforts to the Black Lives Matter cause and the wider repercussions of the Covid-19 pandemic.”
The Duchess checked in with the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen during a Zoom call in April, to throw her support behind a new campaign the group launched to feed Londoners during the coronavirus lockdown.
Meghan told the women during the call: “You all had it in you and what was so great is after that first day and then however many visits later, and going ‘yeah we’re just going to make a book’, and not realising, knowing and having a lot of faith in what you guys could bring to the table, and what you could inspire but obviously not knowing what a huge success it was going to be.”
“That is just a testament to you, and what I love is it’s just inspired so many people.”
