Local bakery truck gives out bread to stranded drivers in I-95 traffic jam
After not having eaten for more than 30 hours while stranded in an icy traffic jam on I-95 in Virginia, a couple figured they would try to see if they could get some much-needed food. They noticed a bread truck behind them, so they decided to call the company and ask if they could get some bread. They were surprised to receive a phone call 20 minutes later from the owner of Baltimore-based H&S Bakery, which owns Schmidt Baking Company. Chuck Paterakis told her he was instructing the truck's driver, Ron Hill, to open up the back and pass out some food. The couple then helped distribute about 300 packages of rolls and loaves of bread to people in surrounding vehicles over the course of an hour.
