Paramore will donate a portion of concert ticket sales to a vegan charity
Paramore has pledged to donate a portion of its concert ticket sales to a vegan charity fighting food insecurity and climate change*.
The iconic rock band revealed their US tour dates last week, as well as their partnership with the Support + Feed initiative.
Run by Billie Eilish’s mother, Maggie Baird, Support + Feed initially began helping those most vulnerable during the Covid pandemic, as well as helping vegan restaurants in Los Angeles.
However, the charity has since expanded across the United States and broadened its mission to address food insecurity – particularly in BIPOC and other communities.
“Thank you Paramore for supporting your local communities!” the charity wrote online.
Paramore’s Hayley Williams
Last year, Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams baked vegan chocolate chip cookies to donate to Support + Feed.
The star also went live on Instagram with Baird to discuss her experience with plant-based foods.
“It’s such a journey that I’ve been through ups and downs with it,” she said.
“Now I’m 32 and in Nashville there’s more vegan awareness [and] more vegan restaurants in town…
“I was able to get a lot of education and learn how it affects our economy and how sustainable it is to eat without eating meat. [But] I’m still learning about this.

* A portion of ticket sales from Paramore’s two concerts in Los Angeles and the New York show will be donated to Support + Feed. It is unconfirmed if all US shows will also donate to the charity.
