Jaden Smith just launched a vegan food truck for L.A.’s homeless community
Jaden Smith received lots of love for his 21st birthday, and so did L.A.’s homeless community.
On Monday, the rapper and actor announced to millions of social media followers that he opened a pop-up food truck called the I Love You Restaurant, which serves health-conscious, complimentary meals to homeless people downtown.
“The @ILoveYouRestaurant Is A Movement That Is All About Giving People What They Deserve, Healthy, Vegan Food For Free,” Smith wrote in his post. “Today We Launched Our First One Day Food Truck Pop-Up in Downtown LA. Keep A Look Out Because This Is The First Of Many.”
The artist also posted videos of some of the restaurant’s inaugural guests lining up the street for ready-made food packages.
“We Are The I Love You Restaurant And We Hope To See You Soon,” Smith, who’s the son of actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, captioned one of the clips.
Launch of the I Love You Restaurant comes days after Smith released his latest album, “ERYS,” on the Fourth of July. The track list features multiple collaborators, including Tyler, the Creator; ASAP Rocky; Kid Cudi; Trinidad James; and Smith’s sister, Willow.
Smith is also set to hit the road as an opening act for Tyler, the Creator on his “Igor” tour, which will stop in Miami, Houston, New York and Atlanta.
