The holidays are just around the corner, and Kandi Burruss is celebrating in her own special way by making sure to put the “giving” in Thanksgiving.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member recently took to Instagram to share her latest effort to give back to the community just in time for the holidays. Kandi's non-profit foundation, Kandi Cares, in collaboration with other organizations, put together a food drive to donate and provide Thanksgiving Day essentials to those in need with a grocery giveaway—everything from whole turkeys to collard greens and, as Kandi mentioned in her Instagram Stories, "all kinds of sides" —complete with lots of love.

“Thank you so much to [Goodr], [East Point Parks and Recreation], [and] everyone who volunteered to help with my [Kandi Cares] Thanksgiving grocery giveaway today!” Kandi wrote in the caption of her November 22 Instagram post, which featured a series of photos from the day. She added, “It was an awesome feeling to be able to help so many families to have a great Thanksgiving!” Kandi was also joined by Mama Joyce Jones, who showed up ready to give back and help her daughter make a difference, saying in Kandi's Instagram Stories, "Never forget where you came from!"

"We're doing it big for Thanksgiving again this year," Kandi said in her Instagram Stories, later adding, "We're dedicated to this thing."

This isn’t the first time Kandi has given back to the community through her non-profit organization. Her Kandi Cares initiative had previously hosted a back-to-school drive focused on children and single mothers, as well as given away several $50,000 scholarships to high school and college students from single-parent households. Last year, amid the pandemic, Kandi’s nonprofit also held a grocery pop up event to help struggling families in need within her Atlanta community.

Kandi expressed her thanks to her fellow RHOA 'Wives who showed support, and explained the mission of her nonprofit in an Instagram post from the event, writing, in part, We were able to help so many families and that made my heart smile.”
