“The Chevron Community Kitchen kept our staff and volunteers fed. For 10 weeks the cooks made sure everyone had hot and delicious meals,” said Libby Campbell, Executive Director of the West Texas Food Bank. “The cooks not only fed our staff, but we fed the Texas State Troopers who came to help with our pantry, and when the National Guard arrived, we made sure they had plenty to eat.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla — Get ready to get cheesy! The Happy Grilled Cheese food truck will have you cheesin’ in more ways than one.

The best way to describe it?

“Super cheesy,” said food truck manager Ann Nesbitt. “Ridiculously cheesy. We have continuously cheesy joke contests on a regular basis.”

“Why is a seagull called a seagull?” asked Nesbitt. “Because if it flew over a bay it’d be a bagel!”

Are you addicted to food porn? Your online obsession explained.

When Winny Hayes joined TikTok, she thought the social video app was mostly for lip-synching and dance trends. She wasn’t yet privy to its world of food content: creamy vodka pasta, mouthwatering birria quesatacos and anything and everything dropped into an air fryer.

“I was like, ‘This is amazing,'” Hayes recalls. “And now the majority of people that I follow are food content creators: barbecue, pizza, I actually follow someone who only makes bagels. That’s amazing. I’m addicted to them.”

Food content and the internet go hand-in-hand, and online users can’t get enough. We live in the era of “phone eats first” – that is, capturing images of your food before taking a bite, and the hashtag #foodporn has nearly 267 million posts on Instagram. Why are we so addicted to videos of food?
