The food truck is part of an event designed to support educators, according to Whatburger's website. The event is scheduled to be held on Thursday.

It's unclear where the event will be held or if the food truck will make a stop in the Houston area.

"We've always cared about what you care about," read a statement from Whataburger. "Over the years, the success of schools and students has been a priority for all of us."
