Before we have the honor of watching The Weekend at the highly anticipated Super Bowl Halftime Show, he’s teamed up with Postmates to do some good in honor of Black History Month.

Listen to your favorite music now on RADIO.COM.

The mission: to start off the month by delivering 150 meals from a local Tampa-based, Black-owned restaurant to healthcare workers, and that’s exactly what he did.

Approximately three miles away from Raymond James Stadium, the site of the 2021 Super Bowl on Sunday and where The Weeknd will headline the halftime show, frontline workers from AdventHealth Carrollwood received a very special delivery from Mama's Southern Soul Food Restaurant. 

Additionally, Postmates announced The Weeknd as their first artist collaboration for its nationwide Black History Month campaign, which will be highlighting Black-owned businesses in his custom collections. Users will find suggestions for local Black-owned eateries at the top of the app this month and can use the code "ABEL" to get free delivery on any $20+ order.

Were definitely here for this, and definitely going to check out our local options. Maybe we’ll even order something to eat during the Super Bowl, and by that we mean the Super Bowl Halftime Show. Until then, join us on our mission of getting hype, and check out the clip below.
