Giving Back: Jaden Smith Expands His ‘I Love You’ Food Truck To Brick and Mortar Restaurant To Feed The Homeless

Posted May 14, 2021

Jaden Smith is giving back to his community once again in a big way, and we’re so here for it.

Back in 2019 in honor of his 21st birthday, the rapper/actor launched his ‘I Love You‘ food truck providing vegan food bowls to the residents of Skid Row in downtown L.A., the center of the growing homeless crisis. The model did so well that now he plans to expand it as a full restaurant.

 “It’s for homeless people to get free food…But if you’re not homeless, not only do you have to pay, but you have to pay for more than the food’s worth so that you can pay for the person behind you.” he revealed.

The restaurant and food truck aren’t Jaden’s first forway into humanitarianism. Back in 2019, he set up a mobile water filtration system in Flint, Michigan amid the water crisis that exposed 100,000 residents to elevated lead levels. He also launched his Water Box project to provide access to clean water in underserved areas.

We love to see it! Kudos to Jaden!
