(UPDATE: April 28 @ 11:30 am) - More food trucks have popped up at cardlocks and other spots along BC highways to provide a place for truckers to stop and eat.
It was an initiative started at the beginning of April by Munden Trucking and the BC Trucking Association and the movement has seen plenty of food trucks step up to the plate across the province.
It became Meals For Truck Drivers BC and there are now six featured locations, although you can keep posted to the Facebook group for the latest updates.

The BC Government has now stepped in as well and has put food trucks in four spots across the province's highway network to give truckers a spot to stop and eat.
A release from the provincial government said that food truck operating times will vary at these locations and more spots are expected to be identified and added in the coming weeks.

(Original story: April 6 @ 1:30 pm) - Last week, we told you that Munden Trucking was teaming up with the BC Trucking Association to station food trucks at various locations along Hwy 1.
It was a much-needed initiative to keep our hard-working truck drivers properly fed during the COVID-19 pandemic, since almost every restaurant or fast-food chain has closed its doors to the public.
To make things even better, Ocean Trailer, a company out of Delta, has contributed a $5,000 sponsorship which will allow these trailers to offer up some free meals as well.
Over the weekend, those efforts began in Kamloops, Chilliwack and Christina Lake and more options will be popping up in Kelowna, Prince George and possible Abbotsford this week.
Here’s a list of where and when these trucks will set up, with exact hours provided if we have them available:
We’re still waiting on more information on what will be put in place in Abbotsford.
For all the latest updates on these incredible efforts to keep our truck drivers fed, follow the Meals for Truck Drivers BC Facebook page.
