Pop superstar Beyonce Knowles is cooking up a treat for her native Houston, Texas' hungry families by offering fans the chance to meet her in return for their food donations. The singer has teamed up with her hometown minister and friend, Pastor Rudy Rasmus, to launch a food drive before her concert at the Toyota Center in Houston on Saturday (14Jul07). The first 1,000 fans to drop off non-perishable food items will receive an autographed photo of Beyonce and a raffle ticket for the chance to upgrade their seats. Knowles says, "Hunger affects every community in the United States, so I'm using my tour and Survivor Foundation to bring attention to domestic hunger. "I'm joining forces with Pastor Rudy and America's Second Harvest - The Nation's Food Bank Network to fight hunger. "Reaching out and touching lives is incredibly empowering. That's why I want my fans to experience more than my music this summer. I want them to experience the joy of making a difference by helping someone else."
