The chief executive of RaceTrac will testify March 11, 2021, before the U.S. House Committee on Agriculture that the convenience store industry plays a critical role in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) by providing a convenient place for economically disadvantaged citizens to purchase food. RaceTrac Chief Executive Officer Max McBrayer, Jr. is scheduled to testify at 9 a.m. that convenience stores help alleviate food insecurity in the United States by providing 24-hour food access for SNAP beneficiaries, especially those living in rural areas. RaceTrac Petroleum and RaceWay stores provide nearly 1,700 SNAP-eligible food products at 750 locations operating in 11 states throughout the Southeast United States. RaceTrac’s stores, which are open 24 hours a day, process roughly 3 million EBT transactions per year.
