Vegan advocate Maggie Baird, mother of pop sensations Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell, will go live with Plant Based News’ Co-Founder and Director Robbie Lockie.

The Facebook live will take place on May 12 at 4pm BST (8 am PDT) and will last for 45 minutes. The pair will discuss topics including veganism, the climate crisis, and Baird’s charity initiative.

Support + Feed

Spearheaded by Baird, Support + Feed aims to support plant-based restaurants in LA, NY, and Philadelphia, who have been ‘forced to close their doors and are suffering as a result of the current pandemic’ by encouraging people to gift order food for those in need.

Vetted organizations and groups who have been ‘greatly impacted’ by the crisis, including first responders, hospitals, senior centers, food shelters, and women’s shelters will then receive the donations – delivered by environmental brand Conscious Cleanup.?

‘Honor mothers and nurses’

Recently, Baird and her children helped deliver food and flowers to a women’s center and hospital in LA to celebrate Mother’s Day.

“Thank you to everyone donating to Support + Feed who makes this possible! You made a difference today!” Baird wrote on Instagram
