Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank today announced that it has received a donation of $11,000 from Sheetz For the Kidz, a charitable organization driven by the employees of Sheetz, Inc., to help provide hunger-relief to children in PD16. The funds will be used to purchase healthy food for the Food4Families School Pantry program.
The Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank, a member of the Feeding America® network, is one of 27 food banks to receive this funding from Sheetz For the Kidz. It is projected that this grant will enable the food bank to provide the equivalent of 22,000 meals to those in need. “During this especially challenging time for families, we are so grateful for the support of Sheetz in helping to ensure that no child in our community struggles with the devastating impact of hunger,” says Dayle Reschick, Interim President & CEO. “The impact of childhood hunger is long-lasting and Sheetz’s commitment to helping achieve our vision of a hunger-free community is much appreciated.”<
