Metallica Helps Feed Texans After The Winter Storm

Many Texans are still recovering from the big freeze and snowstorm last month. Many of the foodbanks that help feed those in need lost all of their food supplies. “All Within My Hands”, Metallica’s non-profit foundation, donated $75,000 to Feeding America. It is the nation’s largest organization dedicated to fighting domestic hunger and is focused on helping Texans that dealt with power outages and water shortages due to the storm.

In a statement, Metallica said “The winter storm that struck Texas last month was beyond anything the state’s residents could imagine preparing for. 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.”

As a Texan, I would like to personally say “Thank you so much” to Metallica.
