Kyrie Irving just donated 200,000 vegan Beyond Burgers to Food Bank, the biggest hunger-relief organization, reported New York Daily News’ Stefan Bondy via his Twitter.

This generous gesture follows the 28-year-old player’s earlier $323K donation to Feeding America, as well as the 250,000 meal contribution with City Harvest, which they plan to distribute all over New York. Irving reportedly switched to a vegan diet after watching the Netflix documentary What The Health.

“Seeing the effects of COVID-19 reach our loved ones, our schools, our jobs, and access to food has really impacted me,” the New Jersey native said in an Instagram post. He added that people can join him in helping communities by donating COVID-19 Response Fund he’s launched with Feeding America.
