Jermaine Dupri Partners With PETA to Host Vegan Thanksgiving For Atlanta Families in Need


Jermaine Dupri and PETA will be kicking off Thanksgiving early this weekend by hosting a vegan Thanksgiving for Georgia families in need, the organization announced Thursday (Nov. 21).

Hosted in Atlanta's Westview neighborhood, the meal will feature a full holiday spread including roasted vegan turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, mushroom gravy and pumpkin pie. Tofurkey roasts will also be given away during the event.

"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."

The Thanksgiving event will kick off at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday (Nov. 23) at West Hunter Street Baptist Church, where the rapper will be joined by Dynasty star Elaine Hendrix, representatives from the Southwest Ecumenical Emergency Assistance Center and more.
