Singer John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen showed support for the New York City protesters against the death of Eric Garner by sending them free food on Sunday.
The famous couple hired several food trucks to distribute hot meals to the demonstrators braving the cold to have their voices heard.
Although neither Legend nor Teigen advertised their good deed, several people posted photos on social media acknowledging them. Kimchi Taco Truck also tweeted, “So much love for the super generous & thoughtful @chrissyteigen @johnlegend for their support. #BlackLivesMatter Now come get fed!”
The supermodel responded, “Wish we could be there!! thank you for being a part of it!”

The protests are going strong after a grand jury decided last week not to indict a New York City officer over the death of Garner in July in Staten Island. The 43-year-old was placed in a chokehold after cops suspected him of selling untaxed cigarettes on the street.
“I can't breathe, I can’t breathe," Garner is heard saying during his arrest in a video captured by a bystander.
Moments later, the father of six was unresponsive.
