Liam Payne Donates 360,000 Meals To Families In Need Amid Pandemic

Liam Payne is doing something incredible.

The 26-year-old former One Direction member has just announced that he is donating to the Trussell Trust, in order to provide 360,000 meals to families affected by the ongoing world health crisis.

“It’s not right that anyone in our country is unable to afford food. Food banks do incredible work to help the people most in need of support. It’s vital that we get support to those people right now, as this crisis unfolds,” Liam wrote in his Twitter post about the donation.

Liam also pointed out that his donation isn’t only meant only for the current crisis but for all of the Trussell Trust’s work into the future: “I’m also donating because of the work they do to work towards a future where no one needs a food bank – we can’t end the conversation with getting emergency food to people – as vital as that is,” he explained. “When we’re out the other side of this, we need to look at why there are people in our country who don’t have enough money for food. I want to play my part in finding a solution to ensure people have enough money to buy their own food – and end the need for food banks.”
