Joey Logano is searching for ways to aid the most vulnerable members of his Charlotte-area community during the global coronavirus pandemic. The NASCAR driver recognizes his privilege in these uncertain times, and he wants to help.

“Everyone has so many questions about what’s going to happen,” Logano told For The Win by phone Tuesday. “What’s going to happen with everybody’s health? What’s going to happen with hospitals? What’s going to happen in their jobs? Are they going to have enough food?”

He said he’s specifically concerned about people having enough to eat if they lost their jobs or if their children can’t receive meals from now-shuttered schools. On a larger scale, he’s also focused on the economic impact on the community of social distancing and stay-at-home orders, which will take effect Thursday morning and last for three weeks in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County in North Carolina as a result of the local spread of COVID-19.

So the 2018 NASCAR Cup Series champion started with his Joey Logano Foundation, which teamed up with Bobbee O’s BBQ in Charlotte to offer free meals to children on a daily basis.
