(SportsRadio 610) -- Deshaun Watson is doing his part to help workers during the coronavirus outbreak. 

Watson provided free meals to first responders in his native Gainesville, Georgia after teaming up with the Georgia-based Longstreet Café.

The effort fed more than 150 first responders, which included the emergency room staff at Northeast Georgia Medical Center.

Police and fire departments in Gainesville were also provided meals. 

In Houston, Watson provided 400 meals from Sticky's Chicken to nurses at Ben Taub Hospital.

The Texans quarterback also made a donation to feed hundreds of Houston restaurant and hospitality workers.

Through the Deshaun Watson Foundation, Watson made a donation to the Restaurant Workers Relief Program, a relief center at Riel Restaurant formed in partnership with The Lee Initiative and Maker's Mark. 

Riel, located in Houston's Montrose neighborhood, is producing 250-300 free meals daily.

Watson's donation provides hundreds of meals for displaced workers over the next few weeks.
