Grammy Award winning band Metallica has just ensured thousands of North Texans in the Tarrant Area will be able to feed their families by making a generous contribution of $35,000 via their foundation, All Within My Hands, to the Tarrant Area Food Bank.
The foundation also coordinated an afternoon of service, as 3 DFW-based Metallica fan clubs came out to volunteer at the food bank distribution center in Fort Worth, Texas. Metallica just wrapped up two shows at AT&T Stadium on their M72 World Tour this weekend, the same site where the Tarrant Area Food Bank has fed the Tarrant County community and 12 other counties in their service area during the holiday season.
“We want to thank Metallica for this $35,000 gift, their on-going support of the Tarrant Area and for caring about people who may not know where their next meal will come, especially during these summer months across our 13-county service area” said Julie Butner, President & CEO of Tarrant Area Food Bank. “Food banks across the state are seeing increases in need due to inflation rising costs and we know this donation couldn’t have come at a greater time. Metallica are Hunger Heroes” she continued.
