ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – Sheetz is now offering free “Kidz Meal Bagz” to families in need during these difficult and uncertain times. Nearly 300 Sheetz locations are offering these free meals that consist of a turkey sandwich, a bag of chips and a juice box. Sheetz has locations in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and Ohio.

“…and several in the Roanoke area in places like Roanoke, Christiansburg, Salem, and Rocky Mount, so there will be plenty of opportunity for folks to head out and get one of these packages for their kids.”

Nick Ruffner – Media Relations Manager / Sheetz

Sheetz understands how difficult it is for many and with school closures, many kids in our area are not getting a guaranteed meal.

“The spread of COVID-19 and subsequent school closures has left many children across the communities we serve without a reliable food source.”

Travis Sheetz – President & COO / Sheetz, Inc.

The free Kidz Meal Bagz program will run as long as the need is there.

“If we… obviously still see a need after this two week period, this is a program that will continue while the need exists.”
