The Weeknd is the first artist to partner with Postmates to bring national support to black owned companies. He donated 150 meals from Mama’s Southern Soul Food, an independent local restaurant, to AdventHealth Carrollwood frontline employees.
According to TMZ, Mama’s — along with other restaurants that are involved in the campaign — will also be featured on top of the Postmates app all this month.
TMZ says that Weeknd is the “first” artist to partner with Postmates to support Black-owned businesses this month, which seems to indicate other stars are getting involved as well.
The Weeknd will be taking the stage this weekend for the Pepsi’s Super Bowl halftime show.
