Taylor Swift Donation Helps U.K. Food Banks Serve 10,000+ Meals: ‘The Most Incredible Gift’

Taylor Swift understands the gift of giving.

The 34-year-old pop star has reportedly been donating at various U.K. Eras Tour stops for weeks.

Rachel Biggs, the CEO of Cardiff Foodbank, told The Guardian in an interview published on Tuesday, June 25 that Swift was behind the largest donation from an individual the organization has ever seen. Cardiff, the capital of Wales, was the only city with just one Eras Tour concert. This occurred during Swift’s 152-date European leg, as noted by the BBC.

Though Biggs did not specify the amount of money given, she said it was a huge help.

“The breathing space Taylor’s donation has given us will enable us to lift our heads. We can shift our focus from the food bank to the creation of a sustainable operation supporting people who currently need our help. “This includes support to address the root cause of poverty,” Biggs told The Guardian. “It also includes financial aid to set them on the path to not needing our aid anymore.”

According to Biggs, the Grammy winner’s contribution helps to feed “1,200 people three meals a day, for three days – or 10,800 meals.”

Cardiff Foodbank also thanked Swift on Instagram with a photo of the singer’s signature friendship bracelets that read, “Thank you Taylor Love, Cardiff Food Bank.” In the caption, the charity said the donation was “beyond our Wildest Dreams,” a nod to a song on Swift’s 1989 album.

The Guardian also spoke with Rich Jones, the CEO of Liverpool’s St. Andrew’s Community Network, which oversees 11 food banks. Jones called Swift’s contribution “the most incredible gift.”

“Because of rising prices, rising need and falling donations, we’ve been having to subsidize our food ourselves for a long while,” Jones said. “But it’s fair to say that Taylor Swift has essentially paid our food bill for 12 months. This gives us the breathing space to focus on fundraising efforts going forward.”

On June 11, the Daily Mail reported that the “Shake It Off” hitmaker donated to local food banks in Edinburgh during her time in Scotland’s capital city.

“Thank you so much Taylor – you have changed Edinburgh for good,” the Edinburgh Food Project shared on Instagram.

Swift’s charitable donations aren’t the only thing grabbing attention during her tour. Travis Kelce recently joined Swift in London — in a twist that no one could have seen coming.

On Sunday, June 23, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end performed onstage with the “Love Story” singer. They appeared together at London’s Wembley Stadium.

The couple, who have been publicly dating since October 2023, coordinated in tuxedo and top hat looks for the show.

While speaking with Barstool Sports’ Bussin’ With The Boys podcast on Tuesday, the Super Bowl winner gushed over how “proud” he was of Swift.

“You want to keep things private, but at the same time I’m not here to hide anything,” Kelce said of their romance. “That’s my girl. You know what I mean? That’s my lady. So it’s like, I’m proud of that.”

“You just don’t want to let everybody into your personal life and be able to comment on it knowing that everything she does is getting a headline.”
