Travis Scott is lending a helping hand to some of his fellow Texans after a winter st*rm roil-ed the state. Scott, born Jacques Bermon Webster II, and his Cactus Jack Foundation partnered with the City of Houston to launch an emerg-ency food distribution program, according to a press release.
The program will provide 50,000 hot meals to Houston residents affected by the unprecedented st*rm, which inundated Texans with freezing temperatures and he-avy snowfall, amid the Cov-id-19 pandem!c.
The service is available for those who qualify as “sen*or citizens, high-r**k and/or homebound ad-ults, people with disabilit-ies, families with children under the age of 18, low-income workers, or unemployed.” Deliveries kick-ed off on Friday.
The Cactus Jack Foundation partnered with Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and the Houston Health Foundation. It will also coordinate with local restaurant owners, The Bla-ck Service Chamber, and The National Association of Christian Churches.
Support is offered to residents who live in 30 zip codes prioritiz-ed by the city’s Houston Eats Restaurant Support (H.E.R.S.), which helps local restaurants and residents affect-ed by Covid-19.
The rapper, a 28-year-old Houston native, and the Cactus Jack Foundation have done several philanthropic endeavors in Houston. The foundation held its first turkey drive in November 2020 and a holiday toy drive in December.
Houston also celebrated its third annual “Astroworld Day” in ho-nor of Scott on November 18.
This month, Beyoncé partnered with Adidas to offer financial assistance to those affect-ed by the winter st*rm. Insider compiled a list of charities, food banks, and organizations across Texas working to help residents impacted by the storm.
Representatives for the City of Houston did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
