Jaden Smith Launches Free Vegan Food Truck For the Homeless and Gets Praised By Celebrities: ‘Proud of You’

Jaden Smith opened a vegan food truck in Los Angeles for the homeless this past weekend, and he said more are on the way. The trucks are called the “I Love You Restaurant,” and the food is given away absolutely free.

Smith, who, of course, is the son of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, launched the truck in Skid Row, a 0.4 square-mile area in downtown L.A. that, according to the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, has 2,521 homeless people in it alone.

“The @ILoveYouRestaurant Is A Movement That Is All About Giving People What They Deserve, Healthy, Vegan Food For Free,” Smith wrote Sunday on Instagram, one day before his 21st birthday. “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 #JADENinc.”

He also shared a clip of the food being handed out to a line of people.

Once word got out about what the rapper, actor and businessman did, he received praise from both non-celebrities and celebrities alike.

“Amazing,” wrote La La Anthony.

“This is so dope. I love what you are doing, man,” wrote Kevin Hart.

“PROUD OF YOU, YOUNG MAN!!!!!” wrote Taraji P. Henson. And Jordin Sparks wrote, “This is amazing. Blessings upon blessings to you.” 

Pinkett Smith also shared one of the truck photos on her page, as did Will Smith, who sent his son a message.

“Now THAT is the way to Celebrate your Bday!! I love U, Diggy,” wrote the proud dad.

People also gave credit to the Smith parents for how they raised the “Icon” creator.

“You raised an amazing person. He is doing great things,” someone wrote on Will Smith’s page.

“You must be so damn proud of your son,” wrote another on Pinkett Smith’s. “How honorable and esteemable.”
