Prince Harry & Meghan donated food truck lunches to the King Center for MLK Day

For Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change in Atlanta hosted several events, including a voter registration drive, voter education and a keynote speech by Bishop Michael Curry. Bishop Curry gave a sermon at the 2018 wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. And it turns out that Harry and Meghan were at the King Center in spirit! They donated the services of two Black-owned food trucks for the day at the King Center:

Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are marking Martin Luther King Jr. Day by showing some love for Black-owned businesses. The couple supplied the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change in Atlanta with Black-owned food trucks on Monday, according to the civil rights icon’s daughter, Bernice King.

The food trucks were utilized by volunteers during a community service project event, King said.

A spokesperson for Harry and Meghan confirmed the donation to ITK, saying the trucks, Paige’s Pastries & Bistro and Parlay Savory Saloon, offered free lunches to staffers and volunteers.

Some of the King Center’s events included a voter registration and education drive, as well as a donation drive for the homeless. The pair also shared a personal connection with a keynote speaker at the King Center: Bishop Michael Curry invoked the words of Martin Luther King Jr. during a sermon at their 2018 wedding ceremony.

That’s so nice. What a nice gift to give. That’s so Meghan as well, so food-based. She loves giving the gift of food and drink. She donated $25 Starbucks gift cards to the paid-family-leave workers? She would have preferred to show up to more of her patronages with gifts of food too. You can see the Instagram for Paige’s Pastries (omg, those WINGS) here and you can see the IG page for Parlay Savory Saloon here. Their food seems very sauce-heavy.
