HUNTINGTON — Sheetz has announced an expansion of the “Kidz Meal Bagz” program providing free food to help children and families in need as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Meal Bagz are now available at all 600 Sheetz locations and will be available all day. The Meal Bagz include a turkey sandwich, chips and a drink, the company said in a news release.
Families interested in taking advantage of the free Kidz Meal Bagz program can go to any Sheetz location and ask an employee for a meal at the register or at the drive-thru. Meals will be available daily while supplies last. An adult does not need to be present to obtain a meal.
“Our mission with the Kidz Meal Bagz program is to help as many people as possible and those who are most in need,” said Travis Sheetz, president and COO of Sheetz Inc. “We are working hard to anticipate the need for this program, as meals are available while supplies last on a daily basis. It is our hope these meals will provide nourishment to those in need during these challenging times.”
Sheetz estimated that with this expansion, the business will be giving away roughly 80,000 meals per week across the communities it serves.
The program will be available for the next two weeks at which time it will be re-evaluated based on community need, Sheetz added.
