Big Boi made sure that the poll workers in Atlanta were fed as they worked long hours ahead of Election Day.

According to TMZ, the Outkast emcee teamed up with Postmates and World Central Kitchen to serve over 150 meals to people who were working the polls this past Saturday (Oct. 24). The employees were offered food options such as pan-seared chicken and shrimp tacos.

Big Boi took to Instagram to share images of the event. “We wanted to show some love this weekend to all those working hard at the polls in my hometown of ATL,” he captioned the post. “Shoutout to @Postmates and @wckitchen for helping me make this happen! We were able to donate over 150 meals. Now get out there and GO VOTE.”

Aside from giving back to the community, Big Boi has something else to celebrate this week. This Halloween will mark 20 years since he and André 3000 released their classic album, Stankonia. The duo is set to release a special edition of the LP this week to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the project.

On Oct. 8, Sony Music announced that they will release streaming bundles, vinyl and digital download editions of Outkast’s fourth studio album. It will also feature unreleased remixes.

Stankonia featured the hit singles “So Fresh, So Clean,” “Miss Jackson” and “B.O.B.” — which all went platinum. The LP peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, despite selling 530,000 copies in its first week.

According to Variety, the digital re-release will feature “six bonus tracks, including a previously unreleased remix of ‘B.O.B’ by Rage Against the Machine’s Zack de la Rocha. Other bonus tracks on the expanded digital version: a remix of ‘Ms. Jackson’ by Mr. Drunk and a remix of ‘So Fresh, So Clean’ featuring Snoop Dogg and Sleepy Brown.” There will also be a cappella versions of those singles.
