First Lady Melania Trump and Second Lady Karen Pence will also meet with families affected by Harvey and the first responders who are part of the recovery effort. "The American chain opened its 1st restaurant in Corpus Christi, TX in 1950!"

Other gracious members of the press pool posed for pictures with their fries, tagging the first and second lady in their posts. They are here for ongoing help for #HurricaneHarvey. And while she's been here twice before, tomorrow she travels without her husband, President Trump.

"Y'all @FLOTUS @SecondLady bought me, @CallerElly and @Caller_Casey @Whataburger #melaniaInTX", tweeted Julie Garcia, reporter for Texas newspaper the Caller Times.

Executive Director Bea Hanson said she first learned about the visit just days ago and is excited to show Melania Trump and Karen Pence behind the scenes operations at the Food Bank.


CNN's Kate Bennett shared that they received no burgers during the stop. Thanks for stopping by'.

They also visited the family's new Manufactured Housing Unit, provided by FEMA, which will serve as the family's temporary residence until they can move into a new, rebuilt home.

Trump and Pence are also expected to make a trip to Charlie Marshall Elementary School in Aransas Pass to speak with students and faculty who were affected by the storm.

Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas in late August as a category 4 storm.
