Grab & Go Meals for Kids during COVID-19 @ Multiple locations & times
Mar 31 – Jun 30 all-day

With schools out due to COVID-19, there are active locations across our service area providing free grab-and-go meals for children. We will be updating the list as often as needed.

In addition, Sheetz has announced they are offering free Kidz Meal Bagz at these locations.

List of Grab & Go Meals for Kids

  • Food will be distributed by volunteers at curbside or other designated area to minimize safety concerns.
  • Social distancing is to be enforced by all.
  • The food will be placed in safe and sanitized food containers.
  • You will not be required to show ID.
  • Children do not have to be present with you to pick up food.

Any organizations interested in filling a need and setting up meal pick up location(s) in our service area can submit a request to serve meals for kids.

Also, the Food Bank greatly relies on our volunteers, especially in times of crisis. If you are a healthy adult and want to volunteer, you can self-schedule a shift at
