Metallica donate $75,000 to Texas food banks

Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation has donated $75,000 to ongoing winter storm relief efforts in Texas.

The organization is supporting Feeding America’s work in the region to ensure food banks in the affected communities have access to the food they need.

Feeding America is working with national donors to transport food and supplies to the most heavily-impacted locations, with a focus on supporting communities in Texas and surrounding areas that dealt with the most significant power outages and water shortages.

"The winter storm that struck Texas last month was beyond anything the state's residents could imagine preparing for,” says Metallica. “As temperatures dropped well below freezing and widespread power outages swept the area, families suffered. Grocery chains did the best they could to support their communities, but their supply was hit hard. While temperatures have risen and electricity has been restored in many areas, residents are still very much in the throws of a struggle.

"Texans running low on food are finding empty grocery store shelves. Food pantries are running out of supplies. And the freeze has wiped out substantial portions of the state's citrus and vegetable crops. As part of our commitment to fighting food insecurity, All Within My Hands has donated $75,000 to Feeding America to be distributed to Texas food banks."

Metallica’s financial aid assistance for Texans follows last fall’s $250,000 donation to help with California wildfire relief efforts and last summer’s series of grants to organizations doing essential work during the pandemic.
