Tyler Perry was in the giving mood this weekend -- as Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta welcomed thousands of cars for a food giveaway Sunday morning.

More than 5,000 families came from all over to get in line at the food drive giveaway that the studio dubbed TPSGiving.

Tyler Perry and co. gave away 100,000 pounds of non-perishable food as well as gift cards to the first 5,000 families to pull up to their grounds in southwest Atlanta on Sunday.

The cars started arriving as early as Saturday afternoon, and the line of cars only grew bigger going into Sunday -- with the food drive going from 8 AM ET to noon.

Traffic backed up all along the surrounding freeway, TMZ reported.

Tyler's staff wore hazmat suits and PPE as they handed out care packages of food at the curbside pickup, and everyone receiving a care package was asked to wear masks.

Tyler's charitable deeds are nothing new around these parts. Tyler's done everything from tipping local restaurant staff -- with upwards of $20,000 plus -- and also picked up the tabs of grocery shoppers in NOLA and Atlanta earlier this year.
