This convenience store is helping to feed kids during the coronavirus crisis. 

Sheetz, a convenience store that operates in Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia, just expanded its Kidz Meal Bagz initiative to all 600 of its locations. This program provides a free lunch for children in need, many of whom no longer have access to the free or reduced-price meals they would normally be receiving at school.

Beginning April 16th, these kids meals will be available all day long (for as long as supplies last) at every Sheetz location. Each meal includes a turkey sandwich, chips, and a drink.

Families wishing to take part in this program can go to any Sheetz location and ask an employee at the register for one meal per child. According to clarification provided on the company’s Facebook page, families can also receive these lunches without entering the store in locations where there is a drive-through window.

Previously, this program was tested at select Sheetz locations, where it was very popular. From some of the comments on social media, it appears that these lunches go fast, and they are often gone for the day by lunchtime. If you’re in need of a lunch for your child, you may want to consider stopping by early in the day to get one.


These restaurants are now selling groceries for pickup or delivery!

    At least in my area, many of the school districts are also providing lunches. Be sure to check with them

      Thanks for the helpful tip, Kara! The schools near me are doing the same. 💖

  2. Melinda A Yorchak

    My area Sheetz is doing this. I was able to get my 3 kids meals through the drive thru. The kids did not need to be present.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      That’s awesome! Thanks so much for the feedback, Melinda!

    Admirable. There are no locations in my state, but I’ve patronized them when my kid was in college. I will keep this gesture in mind for future road trips if I need to refill.
    Thanks h2s for posting inspiration and kind acts. With so much uncertainty, it helps alleviate my anxiety.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re SO welcome, Lisha. 🥰 Thank you for joining us each day. We sure appreciate YOU!

    • Monique

      100% agree with lisha’s comment!

    I have family that works at Sheetz. Please don’t be upset with them if you got and they’re out. At least locally, they’re only given like 8-10 of these free meals per day. And, also locally, people are taking advantage of it because you don’t have to prove you have children or bring them in to verify the number of meals you’re asking for. 😔

    I love Sheetz! I worked for them in college and they are actually a great company that treats their employees well.

    • TJ

      Agreed! I worked there from 1996-2001 and they were wonderful to work for. They also give back to the community a lot. Programs for children in particular.

    Off Topic…want to mention a lot of people are finding 8 oz bottles of Germ X Hand Sanitizer today at Walmart stores near the pharmacy. Price around $1.98

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for the tip!

    • Dollbaby's mom

      Thank you so much! I was able to find some.

    W. Pa here. Sheetz has always been great at giving. I have been picking up from them for over a year donations for our food bank. They are very generous.
