Tyler Perry feeds 5 000 families in need

 Tyler Perry has given meals to 5 000 families in need after personally funding an initiative in Atlanta over the weekend.


The 51-year-old director-and-actor opened the doors of his own Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta for four hours on Sunday, with his employees volunteering to hand out food boxes and gift cards for local supermarket chain Kroger after the “Madea” creator was left "heartbroken" by people's struggles.

In July, he gifted 1 000 Kroger gift cards to local residents, with police officers going door to door to hand them out.

And a month later, he donated a van to a women's organisation that provides hygiene products to people experiencing homelessness in Atlanta.

Earlier this year, Tyler has also paid for private plane travel for George Floyd's family so they could attend his funeral services, and covered funeral expenses for both Rayshard Brooks and Secoria Turner.
