Many drive-thrus are still operating on normal hours to serve their communities, but given the height and space at most drive-thru windows, it's nearly impossible for trucks and other essential service vehicles to fit into them. Taco Bell recognizes this issue and turned its headquarters into a "Truck-Thru."

Taco Bell's Irvine, CA, headquarters transformed into a drive-thru that had enough space for trucks and other large vehicles used by firefighters, EMTs, law enforcement, and media news vans, according to The Orange County Register. The "truck-thru" served Crunchwrap Supremes, bean burritos, cinnamon twists, and Baja Blasts and provided free meals to frontline workers.

The Register says that although the Taco Bell headquarters has test kitchens, they usually don't feed food to the public, so this initiative was new for the brand. The next time the "truck-thru" will be open is on May 1.

Like many other fast food and chain restaurants, Taco Bell is doing what they can to continue providing for loyal customers while making sure both patrons and workers remain safe. To brighten up our days, Taco Bell has been offering free Doritos Locos Tacos with drive-thru orders and they even released a new cravings pack that includes four tacos and four burritos for just $10.

Meanwhile, McDonald's is offering free "Thank You Meals" to healthcare professionals and first responders, and places like Chipotle and White Castle have had similar promotions.
