Jaden Smith Is Opening A Restaurant To Provide Homeless People With Free Vegan Meals
Son of Will Smith and Jada Pinket Smith, Jaden Smith is giving back to disenfranchised communities. In 2019, at only 21, he launched his food truck ‘I Love You,’ in the skid row area of Los Angeles. After the success of that company, Jaden Smith has announced his plans for opening a restaurant.
Jaden Smith spoke with Variety and explained what ‘paying it forward’ will look like at the eatery and said those who aren’t homeless will be required to pay
“more than the food’s worth so that you can pay for the person behind you.”
When Jaden Smith launched his food truck ‘I Love You’, he said:
“The movement is about giving people what they deserve, healthy vegan food for free.”
Jaden’s philanthropic efforts have helped to feed thousands of people in Los Angeles and Harlem, New York.
Jaden also heads the Water Box brand, which has a goal is to provide access to clean water to communities. It is featured in New Balance’s We Got Now campaign. This initiative has also been documented in Netflix’s Brave Blue World.
Jaden has several Water Box locations in Flint Michigan, where the water system was contaminated with lead. He also has Water Box locations set up in New Jersey and New York.
