(WFXR) — Starting Thursday, April 2, almost 300 Sheetz locations across the mid-Atlantic will kick off a new Kidz Meal Bagz program providing free food to help children and families in need due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to a Sheetz representative, the Kidz Meal Bagz program will offer one bag containing a free turkey sandwich, chips, and drink to each child on a daily basis while supplies last. Sheetz says the program will be available for two weeks, after which it will be reassessed based on community need.
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.
