Jennifer Lopez just launched a food line, and she’s already using it for good.

The pop diva and fiancé Alex Rodriguez have donated a year’s worth of meals from their Tiller & Hatch brand to an elementary school in Tennessee, according to People.

The pair took action after Jacksboro Elementary School teacher Brooke Goins’ Facebook post went viral for detailing how she and other teachers started a food pantry upon finding out some of their students often go hungry.

"When we heard about the students and amazing teachers at Jacksboro Elementary in Tennessee, we knew we had to help," Lopez captioned an Instagram video.

"We heard teachers were helping students bring home food when they didn't have enough. When we saw this story, it brought tears not just to my eyes, but Alex's as well!"

The clip shows the A-list couple on Facetime with teachers and students at the school as Lopez revealed she was especially touched because her mother was also a teacher.

Earlier this week, the duo announced the launch of their Tiller and Hatch affordable meal line, which is available at Walmart and whose proceeds go towards hunger-fighting charities.

"We are happy to be in business with partners who also believe no child should EVER have to go to sleep hungry," she continued. "Everyone should have access to delicious, nutritious food.”

While Lopez has had a stellar few weeks following the blockbuster success of “Hustlers” and the announcement that she’ll be co-headlining the Super Bowl Halftime Show, she acknowledged how giving back is what is most important.

She added, “This was my favorite moment of the month and it's one of the best things we've been able to do."
