In December 2018, we saw Foo Fighters raising money for a food bank by putting on a benefit barbeque with Dave Grohl donning his apron and cooking up some tasty treats for locals.
Metallica have been donating to food banks during the last few years and recently decided to go public to help raise awareness of the current issues many people are facing when it comes to food shortages and homelessness, encouraging fans and everyday citizens to get involved.
Speaking to Forbes, Trujillo says:
"Like last year we bagged apples for sack lunches for kids and their school programs, after school meals, also weekends. Some of these kids need lunches during the weekends. They can have sack lunches for the weekend as well. That's where we go through the fruit, pick out the bad stuff, get the good stuff and this all comes from donations."
