With a new world tour underway, there’s no doubt that Beyonce Knowles is hungry to run the planet. But the international pop diva has teamed up with her mother Tina Knowles and sister Solange to do more than just feed her “ego.”

Mama Tina has enlisted the help of her famous daughters as she embarks on a new anti-hunger campaign called “Miss A Meal.”  The foundation proclaims “It Only Takes One Plate,” as it urges everyone to miss one meal and donate the money they would have spent to those truly in need. “When we say ‘we are starving,’ we have to remember that there are people who are literally starving,” Tina said in an official press statement. “If everyone fed one person, one meal, we could make a huge difference. To miss one meal is a small sacrifice to make in the fight against hunger.”

Based in their hometown of Houston, Texas, the “Miss A Meal” project—in partnership with Bread of Life Inc.—hits close to home for the famous women. ”I was 13 and my sister Solange was 8 when we started donating and serving meals to the homeless after church,” Beyonce said about the Knowles’ lengthy relationship with Bread of Life. “There were people from all walks of life, even children, who needed a meal. We learned that we are all three paychecks away from poverty. It was a lesson in humility for all of us.”

For Solange, it’s a lesson learned that she’s happy to instill  into the next generation. “There are dozens of memories of me and my sister volunteering at Bread of Life, we got to see firsthand how grateful people were to receive a hot meal,” said the DJ, model and musician. “For many people, this was their only meal of the day and we learned early on not to take anything for granted. I’m passing on those same lessons to my son Julez.”
