Erbert and Gerbert’s announced their Sponsor a Hero program, where customers can help essential workers with free meals delivered safely to their place of work. Over 30 years ago in Eau Claire Erbert & Gerbert’s Sandwich Shop delivered its very first sandwich. Today & during this tough time, Erbert & Gerbert’s is still open, doing what they do best—safely delivering bold sandwiches as well as providing takeout, pickup and drive-thru where available. Erbert & Gerbert’s, rooted in the belief of doing good and paying it forward, have been providing meals for essential workers and businesses still open during COVID-19.

Now businesses or individuals looking to do the same can help feed local heroes with Erbert & Gerbert’s Sponsor a Hero. The idea is simple. Go to to start the process of purchasing a meal for the heroes in your own life, in your community. The appropriate Erbert & Gerbert’s location will call you back once you fill out the online submission form, and will confirm details and payment. They will deliver it safely at a predetermined date and time along with a personal thank you and special message from you. The meal can also be delivered as an anonymous donation.

Eric Wolfe, President & CEO of Erbert & Gerbert’s says of the program, “We’re really proud of what our local stores are doing to give back during this time. It’s heartwarming, and it’s exactly what our brand is all about. We really wanted to also find a way to connect people who are looking for an outlet to help, especially now. This is a small, simple way to do just that and to hopefully bring smiles to some more faces out there.”

Erbert & Gerbert’s, in response to COVID-19, has also launched new family meal bundles in an effort to provide convenient, affordable meals for those at home.

The new Mac & Brisket Meal Bundle contains all-natural beef brisket and gooey mac and cheese to make either four or six bbq beef brisket sandwiches topped with mac or on the side. The Free Kids Meal Bundle comes with two adult meals with choice of sandwich with chips & pickle, and a free kids meal. The new Family Meal Bundle includes four meals with choice of sandwich, four chips and four cookies. These bundles plus bulk soup and mac are now available to order via app, online or call-in.
