Coronavirus has shut down dine-in restaurants across the country, but the unexpected bright side is that so many people outside of the trucking industry are coming forward to help make sure that truckers get fed.
The Coronavirus pandemic has caused rampant anxiety, fear, and uncertainty in the American public, but it has also been an opportunity for people to come together to support one another.
U.S. truckers, who are on the front line in the battle against COVID-19, are facing some severe hardships on the road as rest stops and restaurant facilities close. But it is heartwarming to see that a number of members of the public are going above and beyond to make sure that truckers who can’t fit through a restaurant drive-through can still get a meal.
Check out some examples shared on social media below.
