Lori Loughlin teared up while talking about “people who have hit a low in their life” in her first TV appearance since the college admissions scandal.
The “Full House” alum was a guest on KTLA’s “Lead with Love 3 telethon” on Saturday to promote her work with the Project Angel Food charity in Los Angeles.
“It is a community, it is a family, and all the people that work here are just so wonderful. They have welcomed me with such open arms at a time when I was feeling particularly down and broken,” Loughlin, 57, explained.
“That’s how I found a home here, and that’s what I feel like they did for me. And that’s why I’m so proud to be here and working with this organization. Because they really do care. It’s really a community.”
Loughlin added that Project Angel Food is “more than just” feeding people.
“It’s about loving people and helping people,” she said. “I think that is so important.”

A source told Page Six that Loughlin has continued volunteering with the organization after she fulfilled her 100 hours of community service last year.
“She continued to volunteer on a weekly basis, every week, making deliveries. She doesn’t do this for show,” the insider told us.

“She’s very quiet about it, but she shows up every single week. It’s become a weekly thing for her. It’s a part of who she is. She really loves this work.”
Loughlin let cameras follow her for “a day in the life” of a volunteer and explained that she’s been helping pack meals via the organization for over a year.

“My favorite is doing the deliveries,” she said. “I have the same delivery route, once a week, and I see the same people. It’s so nice to make that connection with those people. Often, they are unable to leave their homes.”
The telecast also showed a woman along Loughlin’s route who gushed about the organization while giving Loughlin a hug.

“I literally didn’t eat anything and because of Project Angel Food, bringing foods that cover all bases, and I’m well and happy and healthy, and I have Project Angel Food to thank for that,” she said.
The actress’ non-acting TV return comes just over a month after she made her first red carpet appearance since the highly publicized scandal.
