Longtime vegan Jermaine Dupri has hosted a plant-based Thanksgiving event for families in need in his hometown of Atlanta.

The hip-hop legend partnered animal rights charity PETA for the event, serving meals to more than 50 families in need last weekend.

Atlanta vegan restaurant Café Sunflower provided the meals, and the Southwest Ecumenical Emergency Assistance Center and Hands On Atlanta served the food alongside Dupri.

'Vegan for a decade'

"I've been vegan for over a decade, and for me, there's nothing better for feeling your best and knowing you're helping the planet and animals," said Dupri.

"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."

PETA provided vegan starter kits to attendees, and some families went home with a turkey-free Tofurky roast too.
