Edinburgh Foodbank Thanks Taylor Swift for Generous Donation

A charity in Scotland is sharing their deep gratitude for Taylor Swift after the superstar made a generous donation to their foodbanks during her recent Eras Tour stop.

The Edinburgh Food Project, which runs seven foodbanks in the city, said that Taylor’s donation would make a huge difference to so many lives:

“As fans gathered at Murrayfield on Friday for the first of three record-breaking gigs, Edinburgh Food Project found out that Taylor Swift would be making a donation to support foodbanks across the city,” the charity posted on their official Instagram page.

“Taylor’s visit will live in Edinburgh’s memories for years to come, and this gift will mean people in crisis will also feel the long-lasting impact.”

They ended the message, “Thank you so much Taylor – you have changed Edinburgh for good.”

The exact amount Taylor donated hasn’t been revealed however Edinburgh Food Project director Bethany Biggar said the charity is “thrilled” to receive her support, adding that “things are really tough for a lot of people right now, so it is lovely to see someone like Taylor spreading such positivity.”

If you’re a Swiftie, you’ll be well aware that donating to food banks during The Eras Tour is kind of Taylor’s thing…

In April last year, she donated over 125,000 meals to Feeding Tampa Bay. Before that, she made donations to Three Square in Nevada and the Arizona Food Bank Network. In June 2023, she donated to the Gleaners Community Food Bank in Detroit.

During her visit to Australia in April this year, Taylor quietly donated to Foodbank Victoria helping thousands of families facing food insecurity.

And these are just the ones we know about!

Taylor is currently touring through the UK with her next stop in Liverpool, England.
