Metallica Foundation supporting Ukraine through World Central Kitchen

Through their All Within My Hands Foundation, Metallica wants you to help them support World Central Kitchen’s work aiding in the humanitarian crisis in Eastern Europe.

Metallica recently donated $500,000 to the World Central Kitchen, and fans can donate via – remember to select World Central Kitchen Ukraine Relief Fund link. Metallica will also offer exclusive merchandise via their online shop until the end of May, with proceeds directly going to the WCK.

“The work that Chef José Andrés and the dedicated World Central Kitchen cooks do on the frontlines in a humanitarian crisis is nothing short of incredible,” Lars Ulrich said.

“We are inspired, humbled, and beyond proud to support their teams currently in six European countries serving the millions of Ukrainians who have been forced to leave their homes. WCK represents everything that Metallica and our All Within My Hands foundation stand for by providing meals with dignity and hope worldwide.”

“World Central Kitchen is grateful for Metallica and All Within My Hands Foundation’s support and belief in our mission,” Nate Mook, CEO of World Central Kitchen, said. “They share our belief that a plate of food is more than just nourishment; it’s hope and a sign that someone cares. Their support will allow us to continue to provide fresh and comforting meals to Ukrainians fleeing their homes as well as those staying in the country.”

The Metallica All Within My Hands Foundation began its annual Month of Giving early this year with a $500,000 donation to WCK, on top of a recent $100,000 grant, intending to bring that number to a total of $1 million over the next two months.

Metallica family artist Andrew Cremeans has created a one-of-a-kind shirt for this campaign, available for pre-order now. Keep watching the store for other exclusives and additional merchandise, with all proceeds going to this campaign.
