ATLANTA — Last weekend, a handful of celebrities and dozens of Atlanta residents participated in the Feed Your City Challenge.
The rapper’s celeb pals Jhené Aiko, and East Point singer 6lack came together for the event, which provided PPE, voter registration resources, and groceries to as many as 4,500 community members in the city.
The Feed Your City Challenge was founded by retired NBA star Ricky Davis and Suave House Records founder Tony Draper.
The original goal was to combat adverse social and economic issues impacting minority communities. Now, the movement is pushing forward to new heights, especially during the pandemic.
Events associated with the Feed Your City Challenge are taking place in cities across the nation.
The Brooklyn event was hosted by Universal Music Group Senior VP of A&R and Victor Victor Worldwide CEO Steven Victor, along with Pusha-T.
Grammy-award winning musician Raphael Saadiq hosted the Oakland challenge event.
In Los Angeles, the challenge event was hosted by philanthropist and multip-platinum songwriter and record executive DJ Mustard.
The challenge event in Miami was hosted by Grammy-nominated songwriter, rapper, entrepreneur, and Fayette County resident Rick Ross.
In addition, following Atlanta's event, other challenge events are planned for Flint, Mich., Harlem, and Dallas.
