YG and Mustard celebrated Juneteenth by feeding Los Angeles residents in a collaboration with Postmates and Fishbone Seafood.
The two, who recently obtained an equity stake in Fishbone Seafood restaurants, utilized the new partnership to donate $100,000 worth of meals via Postmates.
“I met one of the [Fishbone] owners at a gas station, and he told me we should do business,” YG said in a statement. “I called Mustard and told him about the opportunity, and he was ready to go.”
“COVID-19 has hit Black and Brown communities the hardest,” Mustard added. “YG and I have not forgotten where we come from, and feel a duty to support those who are less fortunate and have been our biggest supporters from the beginning.”
On Juneteenth, the two delivered $50,000 worth of free food from participating Fishbone locations. The two free meal options were either The Mustard Plate—grilled shrimp and filet sole with sautéed vegetables—or the YG Plate—grilled filet sole with sautéed vegetables.
This week, they’ll be running it back, with another $50,000 round of food donations going to various L.A. organizations such as A New Way of Life, Hollywood Food Coalition, Midnight Mission, Watts Empowerment Center, Upward Bound House and five St. John’s Well Child and Family clinics.
Shout out to YG and Mustard for looking out for the people of L.A. during these trying and tumultuous times.
