    Just get you a sign that says "SWIFT TRAINEE" and hold it up at the corners. Good hearted truckers will give you a hand out.

    Keep in mind truck stops have microwaves they will let you use too. I use to do bowls of soup. Show cashier I brought it in. Popcorn is another. Cans of beanie weenies. You wont have a lot of space so small things. I do Nutri Grain bars (cereal bars), cups of mac & cheese.

    They make that peanut butter and jelly that's together in one jar. Tortillas (wheat or flour) will travel better (and they're 'smaller') than bread.

    Ya, strange to be in training and not getting some form of wages... Our company pays up to $100/day while in training... At least you can feed yourself and buy a few things while out on the road.
     
    White_Knuckle_Newbie and bzinger Thank this.

    I'm sitting at a TA. One of the trainers on the new account I'm on comes in with his student.
    Get to talking.
    It's his students birthday.
    Buys his student steak dinner, and birthday cake.
    Good trainers take care of their students.
    If and when I become a trainer, my students will be taken care of.
    I keep food in my truck. I have a cooler.
    I have , well right now at home cause I just got a new truck assigned, a months worth of canned food.
    Fresh fruit I keep in truck, etc.
    Not all trainers are bad
