A lot of attention was at SoFi Stadium this week as Hip-Hop artist, Songwriter, and celebrity cook Snoop Dogg was on hand to assist the City of Inglewood with its annual Turkey giveaway presented by Pepsi.
“Do you want me to put it in the back, or do you want it next to you in the front seat so you can look at it,” said the well-known Snoop Dogg.
That was one of about 3,000 cars that passed through the parking lot.
Each car received a Turkey donated by Don Lee Farms. They also received a bag that included can goods and dressing for a complete meal.
The goods were provided by Pepsi, Frito Lay, and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. Snoop was helped by Mayor James T. Butts and hundreds of volunteers organizing the bags and placing them into cars.
“This is not the first time the Food bank has helped us,” said Mayor Butts. “They help the community all year round.”
The entire event was brought to life by The Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers who had several employees including office members and Ram Cheerleaders volunteering.
“This is a big help,” said Inglewood resident Karen Rodriquez. “It’s been a struggle the past few weeks and this will help a whole lot.” Rodriquez was laid off due to COVID and has three kids to prep for the Holidays.
The event was drive-through only and participants had to pre-register.
