‘Fueling Our Heroes’: CDLLife launches nationwide campaign to feed American truckers


Truck drivers are putting their lives on the line to deliver the supplies needed to keep America running during a time of unprecedented crisis. And that’s why CDLLife is calling on the trucking industry to support these heroes with a nationwide effort to provide them with free meals as a token of our gratitude.

Truckers across the U.S. have stepped up to keep the country moving as the COVID-19 emergency puts the nation’s supply chain to the test. However, as drivers are working longer and harder, many feel that they’ve been abandoned as restaurants have closed, rest areas have shuttered, and grocery stores have become increasingly restrictive during the pandemic.

For more than a month now, truckers have reported struggling just to find a meal, which is ironic and sad considering that many of them are hauling food and other essential supplies to be consumed by others.

No driver should ever have to go hungry because he or she can’t find food, and that’s why CDLLife has launched the “Fueling Our Heroes” campaign.

Our goal? To purchase and distribute as many fresh meals as possible to truck drivers across the country.

The mission will be spearheaded by CDLLife’s Sadie Church as well as YouTube celebrity and truck driver Brittney Richardson. Church and Richardson will be arriving in California on April 30 to pick up a trailer full of healthy meals that they’ll then deliver to drivers across the country at rest areas and truck stop locations.

“Right now, drivers on the front line. They’re making sure our grocery stores are full. They’re making sure we have all the supplies that we need. So the least that we can do is make sure that they’re fed,” Church said.

Viewers will be able to follow Church and Richardson along on their adventure via the CDLLife app, the CDLLife Facebook page, the CDLLife YouTube channel, the Brittney in Pink Facebook page, and the American Truckers YouTube channel.

Americans who are looking for a way to honor the remarkable efforts of our nation’s drivers are encouraged to consider sponsoring the Fueling Our Heroes campaign. Our goal is to raise $250,000 to maximize the number of meals we can provide for drivers.
