On May 7, Veteran Carriers, a trucking company from Savannah, launched the “Feed the Trucker” project.
All truck drivers will be able to have free lunch at The Eatery Enmarket on Pine Barren Road, Georgia, throughout 2021. It serves a large number of trucks entering and exiting the Georgia Ports Authority.
Volunteers will hand out free lunch boxes from 11:00 to 14:00 on the first Friday before the year’s end.
“Throughout 2020 and 2021, truckers have kept us fed and supplied, even during the darkest and most frightening days of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Cliff White, president of Veteran Carriers. “We wanted to do something, however small, to acknowledge the sacrifice and determination these truckers have demonstrated. We wanted it to be for all truckers, not just our own drivers, and we worked out a way for volunteer groups like the Veterans Council of Chatham County to participate so that the truckers will know the community at large appreciates them.”
