Jaden Smith's generosity exceeds that of most millionaire children. The actor/rapper opened a vegan food truck to feed healthy, nutritious meals to the homeless in Los Angeles.

Jaden spent the eve of his 21st birthday feeding the homeless with his new vegan food truck venture, the I Love You Restaurant, in Los Angeles on Sunday. Jaden and his helpers parked the mobile eatery in the city's impoverished Skid Row neighborhood, where a large concentration of homeless people live and sleep.

Staff members handed out free, healthy meals to those in need. Jaden shared video footage of the giveaway on Instagram, where he revealed his hopes to expand his philanthropic efforts to others across the U.S.

"The @ILoveYouRestaurant Is A Movement That Is All About Giving People What They Deserve, Healthy, Vegan Food For Free," Jaden captioned one post.

"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".

Jaden, the son of A-list actors Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, also helped the people of Flint, Michigan, where residents have been exposed to lead-contaminated water since 2014.

With the help of his dad, Will, Jaden launched a new mobile water filtration system, which was installed at a church in Flint.

He unveiled a second mobile unit in June, which he donated to Flint residents in comedienne and fellow philanthropist Ellen DeGeneres' name.

    This was really pure deed. Kudos to Will and Jada they raised some decent human beings. I'm not going to lie I judged them for a long hot moment for alot of views, parenting, attitude but I guess despite annoying fake wokeness they really do care.

  • Lucky8

    Giving back that's what's up

    "All help not good help" crossed my mind yesterday, so I need to be watchful so that when it presents itself I can shut it down.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    yes because it is being disguised !!!

  • Navybeans95

    Hope his generosity doesn't get him killed...no place for big hearts in this world ..it's better to keep it hidden, just my opinion...

    I'm a vegan but homeless people need meat..

  • iWasteTime

    I'm not going to lie, I side eyed the shat out of Will and Jada on how they raised these kids.
    Jaden is remarkable! so much heart, caring and understanding at 21. The Water company and now this! My son likes his music too.
    He better GO and keep making folk proud!

    Jaden is a super dope dude!!! I just need him to stop dying his eyebrows!! Hahaha

    This boy has a vision and im in full support!!

    OMG

  • Stacy Duhe

    I have learned not to judge people bought to only look at the good that they do and the good that is on the inside of them. Go Jaden Smith may God Prosper your hands and all that you do

  • Meme

    The old dear looks like she'll cuss up a storm when she gets to opening the bag and realises theres no meat! Can just imagine her saying "whad am i s'pposed to do with this here rabbit food" . But all the carnivores disappointment aside that was very noble of the young man!

  • Shawty

    He should've made it a challenge for other young folks since they seem to like those silly challenges. Do one that will actually make an impact.

  • SpillyNillie

    He gives back in the most profound ways. Gotta love this young man and his generosity!

  • Sha

    What is wrong with opening up you heart? that's a good look in my opinion. Job well done, Jaden

  • Kimberly King

    I remember reading about this a couple days ago. Very dope idea ! And I can tell it's from the heart.

  • Lainy Damone

    PROUD OF YOU JAYDEN!! THIS IS A GREAT ACT!!

  • Navybeans95

    Putting himself out there like that is risky... he's vulnerable as a high profile person, a skid row resident has nothing in common with him and sometimes nothing to lose...giving privately is always an option and I also said its my OPINION.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Nice!

  • sjames

    he's turned himself into his Netflix character, Kaaz Khan lol i love it! literally a black boy with pink hair, super sarcastic, living in a fake anime New York (i forget the cartoon name but it's CLEARLY New York lol)

  • LeeSeeCee

    A young man using his celebrity for good causes. As much as people hate on the way that Will & Jada chose to raise their kids, this young man is thoughtful AND actually putting his money to good use. https://media3.giphy.com/media/26mkhRu3pnRYzDaYo/giphy.gif

  • TriniHarlem

    He's been doing good for awhile. He has a water truck in Flint as well. Good job ??? feel good to read positivity.

  • Eileen

    Wonderful deed young man ...

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Thanks fantastic! I congratulate him and hope that many more take initiative.
    That being said...Jaden looks downright scary!!

  • Li-Wright

    What's on the menu? I think he should turn the food truck into a business 6 days a week and on the 7th day give out the food.

  • Renee26

    I like the idea.... Wasn't it illegal to feed the homeless not too long ago?? Something about it not being safe or the risk of poisonings

  • ClaireHuxtable

    She is such a free spirit... Her skin is beat.. I like how her hair fade into the pink lipstick... Great job Jaden....

    Don’t trust it

  • ClaireHuxtable

    All food products are supposed to be kept and served at the proper temperature. If someone gets sick then you're on the h00k for a possible lawsuit and fines.

  • Renee26

    I looked it up... It was related to Hepatitis chile... Many cities hand out misdemeanors for feeding the homeless

    I don’t feed or clothe the homeless on the street-I don’t want them getting comfortable not being productive members of society with their drug use and all. I will however go to a battered women’s shelter and drop off clothing and supplies for the children.

  • cristalle1

    I love to hear and see this type of positive story. On the sad side 99% of those lining up are African American and some are probably vets. Feed and then address the needs and the source. Solutions...
    Great start Jaden!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    The homeless can't catch a break. If you've got to take your chances... I'm sure they'd rather be alive, full and with Hep, than d3ad and hungry.

  • Nita Pie

    Will and Jada taught them how to be selfless, thats great

    I just imagine some homeless people rejecting it because they prefer meat ?

  • Parent

    They putting Scientology spells in those bags of food.

    But nah, that was very nice of him.

  • Brooklyn23

    Vegan =you're missing a whole lot of vitamins (supplements aint the same as getting it from foods) and I bet eating mad carbs and starch. Been there done that almost had dementia from missing b viatmins. On another note as I said in the other post. Feel free to reproduce but do you really want to? Times are getting worse and much immoral perverse practices are prevalent. So sad for this generation and so on.

  • Parent

    Just checked out his instagram and it is dope asf.

    That's the vegan look. My cousins went vegan and they look gaunt but they say they feel great. Wonderful job by Jaden. He has a kind heart.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    I wouldn't eat anything from a vegan food truck sponsored by Jaden Smith. He didn't even know that ricotta was a cheese and against his veganism just last year. And threw an entire fit and tried to put the hotel on blast for feeding him lemon ricotta blueberry pancakes that HE personally ordered. So hard pass.

  • BlockingTrollsAllYearLong

    Actually.... no. Nevermind.

  • suganspice68

    I hope that Jaden’s shaved off eyebrows won’t be a new trend,he looks crazy in that pic

  • suganspice68

    Lol!!!!

  • And then there is that!

    Well I don't think beggers can be choosy?????

  • CardiB’sAbs

    I bought a homeless man a sub when I was in high school and he threw it away in my face. He wanted money for drugs.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    ?????

  • And then there is that!

    Well dang. Choosy and ungrateful?

  • EyeEmJai

    Yeah, I said this a few years ago once my iron levels were very low. Restored the foods I removed back into my diet and hadn't if any issues thus far. I learned to eat in moderation BUT not completely removing anytging. Plus, I don't trust chemical-based supplements or am not about that supplements life.

  • Treasuremee

    He's done more than Trump

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Right! I was hot! That sub was $7! And I was making about $7 an hour!

  • CardiB’sAbs

    I tried the Vegan diet for a week but failed because I found myself replacing meat proteins with carbs. I’d give it another go it I could find a high protein vegan plan.

  • Elevated Soul

    You sound like a damn fool azzzzz fool!

    L.A. is another city represented by liberals,so it is THEY and those that vote for those non productive liberals,who have not done anything for the citizens in their district but they do cape for illegal aliens.

    President Trump got you fools straight triggered. You blame him for everything just because you stupid like that.

    #DumbAzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Wow! I agree with you when it comes to supplements.

  • Marlika

    Good for him.

    S/N He looks stupid as hell in the picture above.??????

  • Rita

    Oh h3ll naw...I would've had some words with his bold @ss.

  • Patricia

    the majority of them are mentally ill

  • Brooklyn23

    The supplements have way worse ingredients than the meats people are avoiding to eat
    Im not sure what one's reason is for vegan but meat is healthy depending on the source of that meat, plus its delicious

  • Patricia

    ?

  • Rita

    Hi Claire!

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Lolol I just walked away. He had nothing to lose.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    I believe it.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Well, research has shown raising cattle and other meats for consumption is bad for the environment and contributes to climate change.

  • Jethro

    Who hasn't? ????? tRump is a taker not a giver.

    Look everybody, it's Captain Save A Fat Orange Racist Moron!

    Good on young Jaden.

  • CookieMobster

    OMG! That doesn't even look like that child to me. The poor boy looks like he's lost and Solace if you look into his eyes. Makes me sad

  • Elevated Soul

    Look everybody with some COMMON SENSE... It's Private dumb azzzz blaming PRESIDENT TRUMP, instead of placing blame in DUMB AZZZZES like ITSELF who support failing liberals like the idiots in Cali who support aliens instead of the many citizens who are out in the streets.

    NIGGAH YOU CANCELLED....

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Lookin like the worm the wet chicken on acid regurgitate!

  • leapyearpisces

    LOL

  • Jethro

    Congratulations for not mentioning Hillary or Obama in that canned reply. I'm sure it was tough. ??

  • leapyearpisces

    I am still trying to lose the little but of weight I gained from being vegetarian for 9 mos. The first 4 months were cool, the other 5 I was knocking any carb I could find...I think until they can come up with vegan fast food restaurants, that's how it is going to be because for the average active working adult with kids, to keep being committed to food prep is hard, and damn it!!! You get muthafugging tide of eating salads, stir fry veggie mixes, and veggie subs. LOL. Even my homegirl who is a devout vegan, when we go out, her goto is fries. She is like on thats all she can get on the late night menu's when we go to the lounges, that and hummus.

    Great job Jaden. Happy Birthday! Our little boy is growing up.

    Wise decision. He pbly would have been just fine ending up in jail with a roof over his head and 3 meals a day

  • Dowoop

    Research is also showing there isn't enough bees to pollinate enough plants if the world went vegan. Either way we all gonna die.

  • Dowoop

    That wouldn't apply to a licensed and certified food truck where the food is prepped on the truck. Now you pop up on the corner with food that they have idea where it was prepped, different story.

    Agreed

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Excuuuseee MEEE??? LOL! What does this mean? ?

  • Mz_Opinionated

    A couple things. I did see this on IG and didn't pay one bit of attention. He looks 16 not 21 and the pink may look better on a girl.

    That is all...

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Oh sh*t me and my bestie was just talking about this. It happens....more often than not. People are always begging (panhandling) and being "choicey" about what they feel as though they deserve.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Makes me wanna run up on him!

  • Mz_Opinionated

    I never went vegan. I went vegetarian and it was a ton of carbs. I had to go back to being pescatarian. Wild caught fish only. It's tough just eating carbohydrates and sweets (in my case). I used to only eat Chipotle when I first started and lost a ton of weight. Once I became more acclimated it was just a mess. So...I'll stick to my eating fish occasionally at this time.

  • BEANTOWN BULLI

    Kudos to you young man!!! But can we get some meat up on that truck!!!??? hahahahaha

  • BEANTOWN BULLI

    He also did a lot of work with the water crisis in Michigan!!!

    I know, and that's what's up! Crazy thing is, THEY never want to shine light on when somebody does good....just the bad stuff!

    The ones on the streets here are heroin addicts begging. VICE had a special on them. This one junky had on a suit and a gas can talking about can I give him money for gas. Sir get your ass outta my face out here wasting all the whiteness.

  • teather

    You all have some issues with Jada's kids. Why? You seem to like the brick wall kids (headed to one going 100mph). You like uncouth ppl but you have a hard time and call these kids "weird". I find that interesting. Keep doing you, Jaden! Keep feeding the homeless while ppl criticize from their sofas watching reality TV eating Fire Cheetoes. I'm impressed with him! Love your fellow man.

  • teather

    AND all of you talking about he looks "out of it" How the f*ck did most of you look at 21? You seem to NOT remember all the partying most ppl did at that age. None of us were photographed doing it. (THANK GOD) It's interesting how ppl forget their pasts. Me, I did what I wanted and had fun, no regrets no addiction. LIVE your lives, He's living his.
