The G-Unit boss spoke with MTV News at the event.
"I'm able to provide meals for victims of Sandy or other people in New York City that don't actually have food," he told MTV News. "[Hunger,] it's a world issue, it's not a third-world issue. One in six Americans are actually going hungry. You got kids that's surviving based on their school lunch and more than one out of five kids are experiencing hunger."
