Everywhere Taylor Swift performs, the singer is making HUGE donations to US food banks allowing them to feed hundreds of thousands of Americans.
Swift’s Eras tour is sold out packing millions of fans into stadiums, generating millions of dollars along the way becoming the first tour to gross over $1 billion.
Aside from her giving millions to foodbanks she also gave $100K bonuses to the Eras truck drivers.
Several of the foodbanks across the country spoke about the impact the generous donations will make to families — they declined to share the size of her gifts.
The hunger relief organizations said that getting a call from Swift’s people was a total shock.
“We thought, ‘Are we getting punked?’” says Michelle Beck, chief development officer of Three Square Food Bank in Southern Nevada.
“They said they wanted to make a gift to help the areas that they were performing in,” Beck said. “For us, that was a pretty amazing day.”
“Pretty soon news media picked it up,” Beck recalls, “And they were calling us. And then, we were in national news — a little food bank in Las Vegas, Nevada, getting some national coverage.”
“Everybody should have dignified access to food,” she says. “If you’re in a position to help in any way, take some action.” — Today
