Pizza to the Polls, a nonprofit organization delivering free food to polling places, took to social media to share the news on Monday, October 19.

Not long after Pizza to the Polls shared the video, Joan Grande — Ariana’s mother — retweeted the post, taking a moment to shout out her daughter.
“I am so proud of you @ArianaGrande… keeping true to who you are.. getting the vote out, thinking of others, supporting democracy in the face of authoritarianism,” she tweeted.
Naturally, the kind gesture didn’t go unnoticed by fans of the pop star, who went on to praise Grande in the comments.
“We love you ariana thank you for thinking of the people as always,” one fan wrote on Twitter.
“An absolute angel with the biggest heart I know,” another one tweeted.
“She’s a caring woman. One restaurant in my company went down/closed during covid. Just a place she ate at, and she gave thousands. Good soul,” a third fan added on Twitter.
This isn’t the first time Grande has sent free edibles to American voters this year. According to a separate article from Billboard, the singer sent coffee and food to Kentucky residents waiting in line on Tuesday, June 23, the state’s primary voting day that helped set the stage for the upcoming presidential election.
“Sent some food and coffee trucks for everyone waiting in line! please pull up, enjoy and use your voice today we need u,” Grande told fans on Twitter.
The “Dangerous Woman” songstress has always stressed the importance of voting, using social media as a tool to get her fans to the polls. Earlier this month, Grande was blamed for crashing the Florida voting website after she told her 77.9 million Twitter followers to register, as The Independent reported.
In 2019, Grande also partnered up with HeadCount — a nonprofit voter registration organization — in order to increase the number of young voters in the 2020 presidential election. Per CNBC, the organization registered twice as many than any other partnership over the last four years.
More recently, on Wednesday, October 7, Grande reminded her followers to register to vote, while teasing a new album on Twitter.
Not much has been revealed about what her new project will include, but the singer announced that it will be dropping by the end of October.
