Singer-songwriter John Legend and his beautiful wife, supermodel Chrissy Teigen, are feeding protesters by providing them food trucks in New York City.
The effort is being organized through #OperationHelporHush, which started in Ferguson, MO after the initial Mike Brown protests.
John Legend has been an outspoken supporter of the protesters’ cause and this is just one way he would like to show his support.
On Sunday, hundreds who gathered to protest were provided with some of the best food in the city from the most popular food trucks around: Kimchi Taco Truck, famous for its Korean BBQ; Milk Truck NYC, and Nuchas.
Legend makes the cause known in his new song, “Glory.”

A line that stands out in particular to the movement:
That’s why Rosa sat on the bus/That’s why we walk through Ferguson with our hands up.

On #OperationHelporHush’s website they claim:
Our first day of service, we were able to feed over 200 protesters and provide them with cooling towels. In a matter of days, we fed well over 1000 protesters, helped local and out-of-town organizers and protesters with safety supplies, housing, and transportation, as well as supported a local food pantry also servicing the #Ferguson community.
Since mid-August, #OperationHelpOrHush has continually and consistently supported protesters and community organizers and leaders as we all seek justice for #MichaelBrown and work for police accountability and equality.
