Global recording artist, actor, and community organizer Vic Mensa, 93Boyz, and ‘The Delta’ continued their Feed The Block / Warm The Block initiative this weekend (1.26), supporting the unhoused community in Pilsen with warm meals, toiletries, and warm-weather items.
Vic was joined by fellow cast members of Showtime’sThe Chi – Jason Weaver, Luke James, Jacob Latimore, and Hannaha Hall – and warm meals were provided by a local black-owned restaurant, ‘The Delta.’ The Feed The Block / Warm The Block initiative was started by Mensa and Eldridge Williams, owner of ‘The Delta.’
Through 93Boyz’s Feed The Block / Warm The Block initiative, Vic Mensa invests his resources to support underserved and disenfranchised communities.
“Feed The Block is an initiative we’ve been doing through 93Boyz, my cannabis company, since the onset of winter in Chicago,”Vic Mensa says regarding Friday’s giveback. “The cold months in this city can be brutal, exacerbating the already dire circumstances that thousands of unhoused people face in Chicago every year. By partnering with a local Black-owned restaurant called The Delta, we’ve been able to serve countless meals to those in need as well as provide warm clothing and supplies such as sanitary products, toiletries, etc. A primary pillar of 93Boyz ethos has always been reinvestment into community; Feed The Block is one of our many ways of giving back.”
