Millions of people around the world have been left relying on food banks thanks to the pandemic.

However, these organizations are fully stretched to their limits and times are beyond tough for many.

But thanks to the kindness of many, generous donations have been made to food banks all around the world, and Youtuber, Mr. Beast, is one of those people.

With the deadly virus sweeping the planet, millions have descended into mass hysteria – and have been frantically stocking up on basics such as toilet paper and dried pasta as a result.  

And, while most are calmly self-isolating at home, many have been taking to their local supermarkets to stockpile on supplies.

The scenes have been truly apocalyptical.

Thousands of frenzied shoppers have been seen hoarding on non-perishable items to see them through the pandemic.

The supermarket’s shelves have been stripped completely bare.

People have been hoarding everything and anything.

Canned goods, fruit, vegetables, fresh meat, frozen meat… You name it, it’s been unnecessarily hoarded and stockpiled.

And one of the more heartbreaking realities of this stockpiling is that many people, including the elderly and the vulnerable, have been left with nothing.

And because the shelves are being emptied at such a fast pace, the elderly and vulnerable have been left behind in stocking up on their daily supplies.

And this is truly a frightening time for the disadvantaged.

We cannot imagine not being able to buy our groceries…

And the worst part is that the food banks that so many now rely on are stretched to their limits and they are struggling.

And because there are so many people out there stockpiling, the donations have taken a rapid drop in the last few weeks.

There have been some incredible donations made, and one of these people is Mr. Beast.

And he’s pretty successful going by his 33.6 million subscribers.

And it showed him donating an incredible £1 million worth of food to food banks in different areas around the country such as North Carolina.

Speaking at the start of his video, he said, “Due to recent events, lots of people have started to hoard food, and when you hoard food, you donate less.”

Mr. Beast decided to donate a lot of food to help the food banks cope under the current pressure.

He filled 6 Smithfields trucks to the brim of food, including bacon, sausages, canned goods, and dried foods such as cereals and pasta.

That’s the equivalent of 1 million meals.

He is seen talking with the Smithfield program manager Jonathan and urging viewers to donate and encourage more donations as part of Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund.

For every $1 donated to the fund, Smithfield will provide one more serving of protein to food banks in need. If Mr. Beast’s audience can help raise a total of $1 million for the fund, Smithfield will double its donation, providing two servings for every $1 contributed.

And we want to thank the YouTuber for changing so many lives with his generous donation. Make sure to keep scrolling to learn about the dog who has been delivering his neighbor’s groceries during lockdown…
