How Jadakiss And Styles P Are Bringing Juice Bars To The Hood
Jadakiss and Styles P are hip-hop heavyweights whose careers have spanned three decades, but their legacies may be solidified by something other than their music. Through their chain of juice bars, Juices For Life, The LOX members 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 said, "In the poorer communities, mostly, the money gets invested in liquor stores and the kind of things we don’t need." Jadakiss and Styles P are leading by example and looking to put an end to junk food in the inner city communities through their Juices For Life locations.
With its three locations, Juices For Life is giving people unprecedented access to nutritional options in the Bronx and Yonkers, New York, with hopes of expanding in the near future.
