Production for the fourth season hasn’t begun yet in New Mexico.

On her Instagram account Monday, Brown wrote that while we stay home and do our part to flatten the curve, we must not forget those in need.

“My thoughts are with the great people and crew from Santa Fe, NM whom we didn’t yet get to meet in our company move on Stranger Things,” Brown wrote. “In appreciation of this community, my family and I have donated 20,000 meals to The Food Depot, which will provide meals for those hungry in the Northern New Mexico service area.”

Brown and her family also donated 20,000 meals to the Atlanta Community Food Bank.

“The leadership and commitment to others demonstrated by Millie Bobby Brown is exceptional,” said Jill Dixon, The Food Depot director of development. “Her financial support will help to provide groceries to families who are struggling during this uncertain time, but her gift is also a challenge to us all: What can we spare in an effort to help others? The Food Depot is so grateful for the example this young woman is setting and the impact she is making in our community.”

The hit Netflix series will film in New Mexico for its fourth season. Netflix announced a halt on filming for all of its productions in early March.
