John Legend Hires Food Trucks to Feed Protestors in New York

Demonstrator’s in New York have been going strong since a grand jury announced last week that no officers would be indicted over the death of Eric Garner and, thanks to John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, they will not go hungry.

New York Commissioner Bill Bratton predicted protests in the city would eventually “peter out,” but he was apparently wrong.

Legend and his supermodel wife, Teigen, hired food trucks on Sunday to feed protestors in Union Square.

Teigen, who deactivated her Twitter account in October following backlash from a joke she made about gun control in America, sent out a tweet to inform protestor’s of their contribution.

3-6pm. FREE food trucks by Trader Joe’s Union Sq. @ophelporhush #FergusontoNYC #NYC2Ferguson

The general public was very receptive to the donation from the power couple, and many took to social media to thank them.

@chrissyteigen @johnlegend just read that you guys paid for a food truck to feed protestors. #thankyou you both are such amazing people!

Also, @johnlegend and @chrissyteigen and their food truck donations? Other celebs take note: THAT is how you support a movement.

So @johnlegend and @chrissyteigen are pretty awesome in general. Paying for a food truck for hungry protestors makes them even more so
