Sheetz offers free meals for children in need during coronavirus pandemic
Sheetz on Wednesday announced it is launching a new "Kidz Meal Bagz" program, which will provide free food to help children in need as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The meal bags will be available starting Thursday at 294 locations, including some in York County, and will include a turkey sandwich, chips and a drink.
Families should go to one of the Sheetz locations and ask an employee at the register for a meal, the company said in a news release.
Families will be offered one bag per child, and meals will be available daily while supplies last.
Sheetz said the program will be available for a period of two weeks in six states, at which time the program will be reevaluated based on community need.

Schools statewide have been closed since March 16. Gov. Tom Wolf announced last week they will remain closed indefinitely.
