Jadakiss and Styles P are making the hood healthier one juice bar at a time. These two legendary member of the hip hop trio The Lox are founders of Juices For Life. They are looking to provide a much-needed place for people in low-income neighborhoods to consume something good for them. These neighborhoods are often referred to as “food deserts,” since access to nutritional food is virtually nonexistent. Styles P had this to say about their venture,
“In the poorer communities, mostly, the money gets invested in liquor stores and the kind of things we don’t need.”
Instead of just giving us lip service these two are leading by example and opening their Juices For Life locations in underserved areas. Currently they have three locations catering to the Bronx, and Yonkers, New York, with hopes of expanding in the near future.
