While there are certainly plenty of newfound obstacles, life has not come to a standstill in WNY or in the country as a whole. A lot of businesses are closed down, but the essentials--like grocery stores and pharmacies--are still open. A big reason they are ABLE to stay open is the hard work of the men and women who transport all the goods we purchase from place to place and to our homes.

There are thousands of drivers out there whose lives haven't come to a screeching halt--in fact, many of them are busier than ever. But with bars and restaurants closing their doors and switching exclusively to takeout/delivery, many of them have lost their favorite food stops. Can't exactly pull a big-rig or a FEDEX van into a drive-thru, right?

Here is the list that was given to me.

***I encourage everyone to to call ahead and talk to the business and find out what they suggest when it comes to parking and pickup of food.***

We want to continue to build this list for all the truckers and delivery workers who are passing through Buffalo or who travel around the area regularly--a list of places who might be able to handle a 16-wheeler or large van in their parking lot, or who will happily bring food to the hard-working warriors of the road. If you know of a spot, submit it in the form below so we can start building our list.
