Beyoncé Knowles is kicking off tomorrow night’s concert in her hometown of Houston with a food drive to benefit Feeding America and the Houston Food Bank.

“Hunger affects every community in the United States, so I’m using my tour and Survivor Foundation to bring attention to domestic hunger," Beyoncé said.

The drive begins at 2 p.m. outside the Toyota Center, and fans are asked to bring cans, boxes or jars of food, but no glass containers.

The first 1,000 people to donate will receive autographed Beyoncé photos, and concert-goers who make donations will be given a raffle ticket for a chance to have their seats upgraded.

Knowles is working in conjunction with the Rev. Rudy Rasmus of St. John United Methodist Church, the church she attended as a child.

“Reaching out and touching lives is incredibly empowering. That’s why I want my fans to experience more than my music this summer,” Beyoncé said in a press release. “I want them to experience the joy of making a difference by helping someone else.”
