Bay Area native G-Eazy and his Endless Summer Fund are partnering with Larkin Street Youth Services to provide meals to local at-risk youth in San Francisco every day for an entire month.

“The Bay is my home and I want to help and support my community however I can,” G-Eazy said in a prepared statement. “We are all in this together and I hope others will join me in supporting our communities however they can.”

The rapper, whose real name is Gerald Earl Gillum, will fund the Mi Morena food truck, which will help reach community members who cannot easily access meals from Larkin’s drop-in sites. The food truck will provide lunch seven days a week for the next month, the duration of San Francisco COVID-19 shelter-in-place order. The money to fund the food truck comes from G-Eazy’s charitable initiative, Endless Summer Fund, a longtime partner of nonprofit Larkin Street Youth Services. Larkin Street Youth Services works to end youth homelessness.

Mi Morena cooks out of La Cocina, a nonprofit working to solve problems of equity in business ownership for women, immigrants and people of color, and supplies a fully equipped commercial kitchen.
