Rutter's 24/7 Promo

YORK, Pa.—Rutter’s has teamed up with its top supplier-partners again to support the company’s “Feeding the Frontline” initiative for 24/7 Day, hosted by the NACS Foundation. On July 24, Rutter’s, along with Hershey, Hormel, Martin’s Snacks and PepsiCo, will show its appreciation for local frontline workers by giving away free meals.

The free meal will consist of a grab-and-go sandwich or wrap, a bag of Martin’s chips, a regular sized fountain drink and a standard size Reese’s or Hershey’s candy bar. This offer will be available at all Rutter’s locations for first responders in uniform and Rutter’s team members, as well as American Red Cross Volunteers, Class A CDL drivers, medical workers and active-duty military with ID. The free meal is available to the first eligible 250 customers per store with a limit of one per customer.

“Rutter’s is extremely excited to bring back Feeding the Frontline for the second year in a row,” said Chris Hartman, Rutter’s director of advertising. “We’re proud to continue our support of the frontline workers in our communities, and we want to thank our great partners for their collaboration in 2021!”

Held every July 24, 24/7 Day recognizes first responders, medical personnel and Red Cross volunteers who work around the clock to serve their communities 24/7. The annual event, hosted by the NACS Foundation, helps raise awareness and donations for the urgent humanitarian needs of the Red Cross and spotlights the convenience store industry’s important role in supporting hometown heroes.

“The NACS Foundation is proud to partner with Rutter’s to support the American Red Cross, its volunteers and the first responders who support our communities every day,” said Stephanie Sikorski, executive director at the NACS Foundation.

Convenience stores are often seen as the first supporters to first responders, serving as the only locations that remain open in a crisis to ensure fuel, food and other necessities are available for emergency workers and customers as they return to normalcy,” said Sikorski, “That’s why the NACS Foundation honors first responders and is committed to amplifying our industry’s reach and impact of its charitable efforts in the communities they serve 24/7.”
