Meals for 18 Wheels fed 150 people during Christmas

Meals for 18 Wheels, a Facebook group connecting hungry truckers with donated meals, coordinated Christmas dinner for about 150 drivers, passengers and their pets.

Each year on Thanksgiving and Christmas the group connects working truckers with volunteers near them who bring them dinner. Drivers in need of a meal contact the page, and then the page’s administrators send out a call for volunteers in the area. The local volunteer then meets the trucker at a mutually agreed upon location with a meal for them.

Meals for 18 Wheels does this year round, but also does a special push for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
