The details of the agreement haven’t been disclosed, but the grocery store chain will have signage in the Wells Fargo Center as well as different promotions with the Flyers Charities.
Wegmans and the Flyers are embarking on a new program to ensure that student athletes have access to healthy snacks. The new program called Food & Fridges will first start at Penn Wood High School in Lansdowne.
Wegmans will also be a presenting partner of the Flyers Recess program which holds assembly programs at local schools to encourage Philadelphia area kids to stay healthy and active and to teach them important life skills.
The grocery store chain, which is based in Rochester, New York, has nine stores in the Philadelphia area, including stores in Collegeville, Concordville, Downingtown, King of Prussia, Malvern, Montgomeryville, Warrington as well as Cherry Hill and Mount Laurel in South Jersey.
