Resident of Clinton, Mississippi deliver dozens of meals to truckers stranded by icy conditions on Interstate 20. WLBT's Roslyn Anderson reports.

(WLBT/NBC News) — Truckers stranded by icy weather along Interstate 20 this week got a hot meal thanks to one Mississippi woman.

Evelyn Fletcher, a retired U.S. Army veteran, heard about the stranded truckers and organized a plan to feed them.

She cooked 65 meals at her home Monday to feed them and families in nearby Clinton hotels.

“Just show people who God is outside the four walls of the church because we go to church,” said Fletcher. “We fellowship, but what good is it if we’re not helping our fellow man and woman?”

After posting on Facebook about cooking the meals, delivery drivers contacted Fletcher and took the food to the truckers. Tuesday she partnered with T’Beaux’s Crawfish and Catering in Clinton to deliver even more meals.
