Earlier this month, Ryan, 43, and Blake, 32, took to social media to pledge support for Feeding America and Food Banks Canada.

"Blake and I are donating $1 million to be split between Feeding America and Food Banks Canada.

"If you can give, these orgs need our help. Take care of your bodies and hearts. Leave room for joy.

The pair's pledge comes after Feeding America called for support as they tried to give food out to the less fortunate during the health crisis.

They wrote on their social media: "As the #COVID19 #pandemic continues, the health and well-being of the people across America who visit food banks are our highest priorities.
