Looks like John Legend has thrown himself into the political moment. Last week, he released a protest song with Common called "Glory." And now, there’s news that he and wife Chrissy Teigen hired a food truck over the weekend to feed New York City protesters rallying around the non-indictment of an NYPD officer is Eric Garner’s videotaped death:

From Okayplayer via Vanity Fair:
Employing the power of social media to get the word out, John Legend tweeted the locations of the trucks and the link for fans to listen to his new collaborative song "Glory" featuring Common for the upcoming film Selma – a picture from director Ava DuVernay that brings the movement behind the 1965 Voting Rights Act to the silver screen.
