Kilgore family helps feed truck drivers after restaurants close

Local News

KILGORE, Texas (KETK) – After CDC guidelines shut down restaurant dining rooms due to coronavirus concerns, it has become a challenge for truck drivers to get meals.

To help the people who are stocking our shelves, one Kilgore family provided free food for truckers along I-20.

On Wednesday, they handed out 30 meals with the help of other volunteers.

“But what prompted us is because we came home to restock our truck. There wasn’t much to restock with on the shelves and there’s not much to eat out there on the road. We just want to be a blessing to other drivers like ourselves,” said Angela Funk, a volunteer.

Funk says the support was positive from drivers and the community which they received over 100 snack bags from.
