AllHipHop Staff

Producer/mogul Jermaine Dupri took some time over the weekend to help out those in need in his hometown of Atlanta.

(AllHipHop News) Rapper Jermaine Dupri joined forces with bosses at PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) to host a vegan Thanksgiving.

The star and members of the animal rights organization teamed up over the weekend for the meal, which was hosted for Atlanta, Georgia families in need.

Among the food items offered were roasted vegan turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, mushroom gravy, and pumpkin pie.

"I've been vegan for over a decade," Dupri said in a statement, "and for me, there's nothing better for feeling your best and knowing you're helping the planet and animals. The holidays are about the spirit of giving, and PETA and I want to give people in Atlanta a Thanksgiving meal that's healthy, humane and delicious."

Dupri was joined by Dynasty star Elaine Hendrix for the gathering, which was hosted at the area's West Hunter Street Baptist Church.

Jermaine knows what's up! I hope his healthy and humane example inspires others to give vegan eating a try. It's the best thing any of us can do for animals, the environment, and our own health.


Go, Jermaine! He's known for a decade that eating vegan food reduces one's risk of fatal diseases, spares 200 enslaved animals death per year, and is the most effective way to fight climate change. I hope he inspires more people to go vegan.
