Jaden Smith has opened up a free vegan food truck for the homeless population of Los Angeles, US.

The ‘I Love You’ truck opened this weekend in Skid Row – which has one of the largest homeless populations in the US.

The 21-year-old rapper wrote on Instagram: “@ILoveYouRestaurant Is A Movement That Is All About Giving People What They Deserve, Healthy, Vegan Food For Free. 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.”

The truck only offered food for one day on its initial launch, but is expected to be seen more and more often with many trucks hitting LA’s streets.

Smith shared a video on Monday which showed people queuing up and collecting food. 

The Instagram page for the I Love You trucks showcases bowls full of delicious plant-based food.

Users commended Smith for the project on social media. 

The rapper’s dad, Will Smith, wrote: “Now THAT is the way to Celebrate your Bday!! I love U, Diggy.”

Actor Monique Coleman added: “This is incredible. Thank you for all the ways you use your life energy to serve humanity. Let us know how we can help!”

“Bless you for real,” singer Kehlani wrote.
