With the Thanksgiving holiday right around the corner, Nick Cannon and Dr. Dre wanted to make sure residents of Compton have food on the table.

Cannon, 40, and Dre (real name Andre Young), 55, sponsored a Feed Your City Challenge event on Dre's hometown of Compton, according to TMZ.

While Dre wasn't at the event in person, Cannon was seen handing out food at the event on Saturday, which is the 10th event in the nationwide campaign, founded by music legend Tony Draper and retired NBA star Ricky Davis.

Citizens could pick up bundles of food, including free turkeys for Thanksgiving dinner during the event.

Personal protective equipment was also handed out to those in need at the event, amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Social distancing measures were in place to make sure that guests were safe as COVID-19 continues to spread throughout Los Angeles and the entire country.

Cannon was asked if he feels 'confident' that President-elect Joe Biden will be able to 'come through for the black community.'

'I know I will. I don't know what Joe Biden's gonna do, but I will,' Cannon said while leaving the event.

As Cannon was getting into his vehicle, he was asked what he wants for Christmas, and he said, 'Unity. Peace on Earth,' before leaving the event.
