Jaden Smith Opens Free Vegan Fod Truck To Feed Homeless People With Free Meals

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith did a damn good job raising those children of theirs, and their kiddos are proving that more and more every single day. Over the weekend, Jaden took to Instagram to introduce his brand new I Love You restaurant. According to his caption, the purpose of this pop-up food truck is to give “people what they deserve” by offering homeless people in Los Angeles free vegan meals. Smith set up shop in Los Angeles’ Skid Row district, which contains one of the largest stable populations of homeless people in the United States. Earlier in 2019, Smith announced that he will help Flint’s water crisis by using some of the profits generated by his JUST Water company to install filtration systems around the city in an effort to purify their contaminated water.
