The pop superstar got involved in the relief effort by joining staff and volunteers at a local feeding station over the weekend.

Joined by five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, Beyoncé was pictured putting rice and beans into boxes and handing them out to those who have lost their homes during the natural disaster.

Her mother, Tina, and former Destiny’s Child bandmate Michelle Williams were also on hand to help out.

“That's Michelle Williams at the beginning of line, serving the chicken, Beyonce on Green beans and me on bread duty,” Tina captioned a photo of the station.

The singer also stopped by the George R Brown convention center to meet and talk to residents about how she could help.

She also shared some words of support as she spoke to the congregation at St. John’s Church on Friday, describing it as a “celebration of survival.”

“Touching moment for me being in St. John's again with Beyoncé I remember her singing her first solo there at 14 years old,” wrote Tina.

“We got to serve our homegirls and guys that were affected by Hurricane Harvey. Please donate to #breadoflife . They are real!!!”

Hurricane Harvey hit the US two weeks ago, leaving thousands of people injured or homeless, with more destruction set to be caused by Hurricane Irma.
