The Dallas Buyers Club star, his wife Camila Alves and their three children visited the Meals on Wheels and More organisation in Austin on Thursday (26Nov15) to help needy locals in the actor's home state.

The family spent the U.S. holiday delivering meals to the elderly and disabled, and Matthew posed for 'selfie' pictures with other volunteers.

Camila took to to share a snap of Matthew and their kids, Levi, Vida and Livingston, posing in front of a white truck holding yellow meal bags.

She wrote, "Delivering meals #mealsonwheels to elders in need. They are so thankful for a meal and a good conversation and the fact that someone can take their time... So much to be thankful for! #thankful #warmheart #othersinneed."

Matthew also wrote on, "Delivering meals on wheels today - meeting some wise and funny folks - happy Thanksgiving."

The MCConaugheys also enjoyed a traditional family dinner together during the day.

The Oscar winner is not the only star who has been helping out over the holidays - Chris Brown joined a charity organisation to hand out turkeys in New York, while rapper Snoop Dogg took part in a similar scheme in Inglewood, California.

The hip-hop star even pledged to take part in the turkey giveaway every year, saying, "This is my second home. Inglewood has been good to me from day one and that's why I love Inglewood and I just want to let y'all know I'm gonna be doing this every year. I'm sorry I'm late but I (am) giving you some big fat turkeys so y'all can get your eat on for Thanksgiving (sic)."
