The Feed Your City Challenge events are taking place throughout cities in America.

ATLANTA — Last weekend, a handful of celebrities and dozens of Atlanta residents participated in the Feed Your City Challenge.

It all went down at Metro Mart on Metropolitan Parkway, SW on Saturday, September 18, all thanks to Atlanta rapper 2Chainz and his Tru Foundation.

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.
