The “Save Your Tears” singer decided to kicked off Black History Month by choosing a Black-owned restaurant in Tampa, Florida–Mama’s Southern Soul Food–to feed frontline healthcare workers at AdventHealth Carrollwood. Because of this endeavor, 150 meals were delivered to the healthcare professionals, by Postmates, to recognize their continued effort to keep the community safe.

This thoughtful delivery marks the official launch of The Weeknd’s initiative with Postmates. The star became the first entertainer to highlight Black-owned restaurants in a national campaign with the brand when he created a Black-owned national merchant collection for Black History Month. The Weeknd’s collaboration will revive an option on the Postmates app that allows users to see the collection of local Black-owned options at the top of their feed.

Another element to this partnership is the fact that it preludes the singer’s upcoming performance during the Pepsi Super Bowl LV Halftime show. With his choice of supporting Mama’s Southern Soul Food, The Weeknd is giving back to the Tampa community, which is hosting the biggest game. of the year. Plus, the essential workers who were fed by the meals work at a facility that is less than three miles from Raymond James Stadium, where the Super Bowl will be played.
