Rolling Stone: What I Learned From My Band’s ‘Day of Service

May 27, 2018

This past Wednesday, Metallica held their first-ever “Day of Service,” an opportunity for fans to join the band members in chipping in at food banks and giving back to their communities. The event was an extension of the group’s charitable All Within My Hands Foundation, which aids in critical local services and supports workforce education and the fight against hunger. Drummer Lars Ulrich pitched in at the San Francisco–Marin Food Bank, where he packed oranges into crates for people in need and rubbed elbows with fans. Here, he explains why it was important for Metallica to shed light on the cause and what he learned from it.
