Beyonce made an emotional return to her home town to serve food to people affected by Hurricane Harvey.

The superstar was joined by her mother Tina and her Destiny’s Child bandmate Michelle Williams to work on a production line of volunteers giving meals to families devastated by the floods in Houston.

The Crazy in Love singer was spotted doling out green beans while Williams served chicken to those left homeless by the storm.

Touching videos were shared on Instagram by the star’s mum who praised her work and that of local pastors.

In the caption, she said it was the third stop of the day after her daughter sponsored a lunch for 400 people affected by the hurricane at her local church St John’s, before they paid a visit to the George R Brown convention centre to meet people displaced by the flooding.

She added: “It was fun unloading the truck and organising the sizes. Please keep the donations coming! Thats Michelle Williams at the beginning of line, serving the chicken, Beyonce on green beans and me on bread duty. Ingrid over there serving deserts.”

Other videos posted show Beyonce was also accompanied by her daughter with rapper Jay-Z, Blue Ivy.

In a video of her trip to St John’s church, Beyonce can be heard saying the day was “a celebration of survival”, adding: “Houston is my home.”

Janet Jackson has also made a visit to the same convention centre and posted a video on Instagram encouraging people to “weather the storm together.” 

Comedian Kevin Hart also showed a video of himself and basketball star Chris Paul volunteering with the Red Cross after his urged his celebrity friends to donate as much money as they could.

He captioned it: “In Houston making sure that the money that was raised is being used properly…”

Harvey, which was later downgraded to a tropical storm, caused devastation across the US before Hurricane Irma raged over the Caribbean.
