G Herbo and his Swervin’ Through Stress initiative is teaming up with nonprofit Dion’s Chicago Dream to take on the city’s food insecurity issue.

As part of the partnership, G Herbo will help the nonprofit’s staff members distribute over 50,000 pounds of fresh food throughout Chicago’s metropolitan area. He’ll also give Chicago Dream a monetary donation every month and raise awareness for the cause, according to TMZ.

“I’m honored that G Herbo – a fellow Chicago native and one of my favorite rappers – has decided to partner with us. G Herbo doesn’t just sound good, he does good. As a result of his support, the Dion’s Chicago Dream movement will reach an additional 500 Chicagoland residents and move them from food-insecure to food-secure,” said Dion Dawson, founder of Dion’s Chicago Dream, in a statement. “G Herbo sees the impact our organization provides, and agrees that reliable access to fresh, healthy produce is essential to stabilizing critical needs.”

“This partnership with Dion’s Chicago Dream make sense for the city,” added G Herbo. “Making sure the community is fed is the first step to healing.”
