Sweet Chick restaurant chain, co-owned by Hip Hop legend Nas and John Seymour, are providing free meals to furloughed federal workers impacted by the government shutdown.
Nas floated the idea to his business partner on Martin Luther King Day and John was all about it.
We wanted to do something positive.
There are a lot of hard-working people out there not getting a paycheck. We wanted to take care of the people who take care of us.
These folks go unnoticed for the work they do. In their time of need we want to be part of the solution.
In order to get a free meal at the wildly popular chicken and waffles joint, all you have to provide is a federal ID issued by the government branch you work for.
Since implementing their awesome idea, Sweet Chick welcomes about 40 government workers a day between their four New York locations as well as their Hollywood restaurant.
Kudos to these dope gentlemen for doing their part to help.
