Truck drivers spend a lot of time on the road and the meal options can be hit or miss. The simple act (seemingly) of finding a seasoned piece of meat can turn into an adventure, when you’re away from home.

Edward Dillard has been a truck driver for almost 15 years and in that time, he experienced his share of frustrations — supporting Black owned businesses is hard enough when you’re at home and that much more difficult, when on the road. Eat Black Owned is a new website designed to solve that very problem.

Dillard, according to Black Enterprise, spent five months researching various restaurants around the country. The process sort of reminds us of how the Green Book was formulated, which helped Black travelers identify safe eating and lodging options. He used YouTube and Google to educate himself on how to build a site for Eat Black Owned, which features more than 2,000 Black owned restaurants across the country.
