“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 & COO of Sheetz, Inc. “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.”

Families who are interested in taking advantage of this free program should go to a participating Sheetz location and ask an employee at the register for the meal.

The Kidz Meal Bagz program will be available at 294 stores across Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.

Meals will be available daily for two weeks while supplies last.

Here is a list of participating locations.
