Lizzo is currently having performances all over Australia but decided to take a break to help out the Australian Food Bank in Victoria. Not only did she physically help sort and pack hampers in the warehouse, but she also joined with the Foodbank to create a website for donations, which are accepting food and water for the victims who are being affected by the devastating wildfires.
“100% that Foodbank!” Thanks again @lizzo for visiting our warehouse yesterday and chatting with our hardworking volunteers and staff who have been working tirelessly to provide food relief to bushfire affected communities. Add hamper packing to her list long of talents @fomoaus pic.twitter.com/llvd7dgRKw
