Metallica partner with US food banks for Day Of Service

Last year, Metallica announced the formation of All Within My Hands, their foundation that aims to assist and enrich the lives of members of the communities who have supported them for so many years, as well as encourage participation from fans and friends and facilitate volunteerism among the Metallica family.

With that in mind, Metallica have announced their first day of service on Wednesday, May 23, inviting Metallica fans across the United States to volunteer for a day at the community food banks the band supported during last summer's North American tour.

In co-operation with Feeding America, Metallica made contributions to their local partners in each city they performed in during the 2017 stadium tour. With the aim of continuing to support the fight against hunger, Metallica is encouraging fans to give a few hours of their time on May 23rd to make a difference.

Each registered volunteer on May 23 will receive a special All Within My Hands t-shirt commemorating Metallica's first united day of service. Please note that space is limited and fans must register; unfortunately walk-ins will not be accepted.

For those who do not live near one of the food banks listed on the site or are unavailable on this day, the band encourage visiting Feeding America to find a local food bank in their community.

Currently on a two-week break from a European tour in support of “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct”, the band will join Major League Baseball’s San Francisco Giants for the 6th annual Metallica Night at AT&T Park on April 23 before resuming the trek in Munich, Germany on April 26.
