Billie Eilish’s Mom provided United States poll workers and voters with vegan meals

Voters and poll workers received a vegan surprise during this year’s general election. Maggie Baird, the mother of singer Billie Eilish, showed support via her Support + Feed organization.

The initiative came about due to the long lines at the polls this year. In some states, voters stood in line for hours just to cast their ballots, and most poll workers performed their duties for much longer. To help out those at the polls and ensure they stayed fueled throughout the day, Support + Feed provided them with vegan nutrition shakes and other plant-based food.

Support + Feed partnered with Kate Farms to deliver 10,500 shakes in Los Angeles, Washington DC, Phoenix, Philadelphia, and New York City, and the surrounding areas. Kate Farms sells plant-based shakes and formulas for both adults and children.

Support + Feed also worked with local vegan restaurants to bring meals to voters and poll workers. New York City’s V Spot and Los Angeles’s The Kind Sage contributed plant-based meals, which volunteers from Support + Feed distributed.

In New York, Support + Feed was assisted by Children’s Aid, a NYC-based organization that helps children who live in poverty.

Baird launched Support + Feed in 2020 as a way to help those in need as a result of COVID-19. The organization, which primarily operates in Los Angeles, New York City, and Philadelphia, supports both people and vegan restaurants, while educating the public on the benefits of a plant-based diet.
