Kim Kardashian took a break from being a tabloid cover girl to help serve Thanksgiving meals to the homeless at the Los Angeles Mission on Wednesday.

“I’m on gravy duty, and I’m loving it,” the reality star told KTLA.

Jennifer Love Hewitt, Zoe Saldana, Blair Underwood and Mel Gibson’s ex, Oksana Grigorieva, also lent a hand at the event hosted by 95-year-old actor Kirk Douglas and his wife, Anne.

Over 3,500 people in need were served “3,000 pounds of turkey, 700 pounds of mashed potatoes, 80 gallons of gravy and 600 pies,” according to the Associated Press.

“Just left the LA Mission. Met so many kind hearted people! They’re (sic) goal is to feed 120,000 people by the end of the yr! We fed so many today,” Kardashian tweeted. (The tweet has since been deleted.) “Everyone of us can do something small that will make a huge difference to someone else.”
