Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz and entrepreneur Mychel “Snoop” Dillard provided hundreds of meals to health care workers at Southern Regional Medical Center on Thursday.

2 Chainz and Dillard own Escobar Restaurant and Tapas Lounge on Peters Street in Castleberry Hill, and utilized their access to food – and 2 Chainz's TRU Foundation – to organize the food drop.

“Born and raised in Atlanta, this city has always been my home,” 2 Chainz said. “Seeing our health care workers putting their lives at risk everyday to keep our city, state and country safe is remarkable.”

Added Escobar, “When things affect our community, it’s only right that we contribute in any way possible --- we are looking to do that with food for the healthcare workers of Southern Regional Medical Center.”

2 Chainz’s foundation has focused on fostering a younger generation, but has also paid yearly rent for disabled veterans in Atlanta, provided lunches and toys for children and homes for the needy.
