The coronavirus pandemic has forced everyone to change their lives and habit. During these hard times, there have been more and more acts of charity and attempts to help those that are more in need.
Support + Feed Initiative
Maggie Baird, mother of the famous pop star Billie Eilish has teamed up with a series of
vegan restaurants to help those that have been affected the most by this global pandemic. The initiative launched by Maggie Baird, called Support + Feed, aims to “help those in need during the COVID-19 crisis,” as the official website reports.
Maggie Baird’s initiative would then support “Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia plant-basing restaurants who are suffering as a result of the current pandemic. It will also help “vetted charitable organizations & marginalized groups who have been greatly impacted by the crisis.” These will include; food banks, family and senior centres, children’s charities, hospital workers, homeless and domestic abuse shelters.
The final aim of Support + Feed is to “raise awareness and educate on the importance of a plant-based diet for the health of the planet. And to influence programs that feed those in need to provide at least 50% plant-based meals.”
Maggie Baird has been particularly active since the beginning of the pandemic trying to help as many people as possible.
As she said in an Instagram post:
“Please help! You can “order” from any of these incredible plant-based restaurants. And the food will be delivered to a needy organization in a safe, coordinating way. When it works for them and with enough time for the restaurant to plan and prepare!”
One of the many acts of solidary from Maggie Baird was to deliver vegan food to the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital and the Downtown Women’s Center in Los Angeles on Mother’s Day.
