Feed Your City Challenge is the national movement for change in underserved communities founded by music industry legend, Tony Draper and retired NBA star, Ricky Davis – will make the eighth stop on its nationwide campaign to combat the COVID19 pandemic September 19th in Atlanta, Georgia. Def Jam recording artist 2 Chainz, Interscope recording artist 6lack, Quality Control Music Group CEO, Pierre “Pee” Thomas, COO, Kevin “Coach K” Lee, and Jhene Aiko’s Social Justice Collective will donate resources for Saturday’s event to help supply Atlanta’s local community members with boxes of fresh groceries, PPE items and voter registration stations.
