HAUGHTON, La. (KSLA) - Neighbors in the Haughton area have been feeding truckers stranded at a number of truck stations, including the Pilot off I-20.

They posted a video on TikTok that has gone viral. They’re also feeding first responders working hard to keep people safe during this winter weather.

Jennifer Dunlap, who posted the video, says they’ve been visiting as many truck stops as they can to feed more stranded drivers.

Haley Huffman teamed up with Dunlap and a number of others to help with the effort.

Dunlap says she saw rows of semi trucks lined up in the snow parked outside the Haughton Pilot truck stop off I-20. When she found out they had no gas or food, and weren’t expecting either of the two for at least a week, she decided to provide what she calls a “blessing.”

With the help of some friends, she went to a restaurant, stocked up on food, and parked her truck outside the gas station. She filled cups with soup and food and handed it out to hungry truck drivers, who were very grateful for their generosity.
