Background

His old man brought him up well.

Sources have reported that American actor Jaden Smith will open a restaurant that provides free meals to the homeless.

The eatery will be named after Jaden’s ‘I Love You’ food truck that was launched by the actor about two years ago on his 21st birthday. The goals of the establishment, according to the actor, musician and philanthropist was to provide “healthy, vegan food for free” to the needy in the Los Angeles Skid Row area.

Β In order to achieve this objective, Jaden wants those who can afford the meal to pay more as a means to pay forward for someone who is unable to. β€œBut 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 explained.

Jaden explained to media how he how his I Love You initiative needed to switch its approach when it came to assisting the needy in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. So instead of having a physical food truck, Jaden instead had care packages sent to the area (Skid Row) that contained food, masks, clothes, and hand sanitizers.

Aside from that, Jaden also launched a water project back in October. Called “The Water Box” it was a filtration system that helps provide water to areas that saw difficulty to obtain the necessary resource. Β Through this initiative, Jaden was able to provide the equivalent of at least 300,000 bottles of water for the needy in Flint, Michigan.

β€œAt any moment, we can create a new version of the world,” Jaden said. β€œI have a belief that the next thing that changesΒ everythingΒ for everyone can be around the corner.”

We respect the initiatives that Jaden has provided for his people. His projects have truly changed the lives of those in need in the respective areas. May we get more people like Jaden with time.
