Altoona, Pa.-based Sheetz launched its new ‘Kidz Meal Bagz’ program to provide free food to help children and families in need as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Meal Bagz will be available all day starting April 2 and will include a turkey sandwich, chips and a drink.
Families interested in taking advantage of the free Kidz Meal Bagz program should go to participating Sheetz locations and ask an employee at the register for a meal. Families will be offered one bag per child. Meals will be available daily while supplies last.
“The spread of COVID-19 and subsequent school closures has left many children across the communities we serve without a reliable food source,” said Travis Sheetz, president and COO of Sheetz. “It is our hope Sheetz’s Kidz Meal Bagz program will make a small difference and provide nourishment to those in need during these uncertain times.”
The Kidz Meal Bagz program is available at 294 stores across Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia for two weeks, at which time it will be reevaluated based on community need.
