Called ‘I Love You Restaurant’, the pop-up food truck aims to supply vegan food to homeless people in Skid Row, one of the most impoverished regions in Los Angeles.
In an Instagram post last July 7, Smith announced the launch of his food truck, an initiative he described as the “first of many.”
“I Love You Restaurant is a movement that is all about giving people what they deserve. Healthy vegan food for free,” the 21-year-old artist said. “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.”
In addition to sharing photos of the truck itself, Smith also posted a video showing volunteers handing out paper bags of food to a queue of hundreds in downtown LA.
His posts were instantly flooded with praise and admiration from Hollywood artists and beyond.
