Tracy Morgan is paying it forward.  

The comedian returned to his hometown and has been helping to feed the hungry in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. On Tuesday, he handed out 1,200 turkeys to those struggling amid the coronavirus pandemic at the Mott Have Community Center in the Bronx, according to Fox News, and on Saturday he joined non-profit Food Bank For New York City and Councilman Robert Cornegy to distribute 1,000 turkeys and side dishes in Bedford-Stuyvesant, near where Morgan grew up.

"I’m happy to be able to give something back to the community," the "30 Rock" star told Brooklyn Paper. "I’m glad I can help these residents, and make life easier for the community knowing they have food."

Cornegy praised Morgan, and other volunteers, for getting involved in the feeding scheme to help people who have been battling to put food on the table.

"This means everything to have people from the communities that they were raised in, to come back and recommit themselves to families, friends, and children, [that’s] the greatest inspiration we need," he said.

"During this very tough time, the pandemic has exacerbated every single inequity that we have, so having people ready willing and able to come back and commit themselves, through word and through deed, and to bring other people along is amazing."

Cornegy said it was inspiring to see the community "out here making sure that seniors get their baskets taken to their cars, making sure it’s well organized."

"The tenant association president and their whole group — it’s just a beautiful experience," he added.
