Nick Cannon has just started a family of his own, welcoming daughter Monroe Cannon and son Moroccan Scott Cannon, with his wifey, Mariah Carey. And while his children likely want for nothing, Nick understands what it means to not know where you’re going to get your next meal.

Which is why the actor and rapper is supporting the Stamp Out Hunger Drive, a hunger relief campaign that is the nation’s largest, single day food drive.

“My family turned to food pantries for assistance from time to time when I was growing up,” Nick explained, “so I know first-hand how important this food drive is.”

The 30-year-old’s impoverished upbringing is now encouraging him to get others involved. Luckily, it’s super easy to participate and give back.

The food drive is this Saturday, May 14th, and all you have to do it gather up your non-perishables, put them in a bag, and leave them at your mailbox the day of. Then, your local postal worker will pick it up and deliver it to the food banks. How easy is that??

“With more than 50 million Americans living at risk of hunger, please join me and millions of other generous Americans on Saturday, May 14 by placing a non-perishable food donation next to your mailbox to help the National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger,” Nick stated.

You heard the man, 50 million people are going hungry, get those cans in a bag people!
