MANHATTAN BEACH, California — Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of KISS have announced they will offer free food to every TSA employee working without pay throughout the government shutdown at their family-friendly Rock & Brews restaurants nationwide.

"We are proud to operate restaurants at airports and respect the diligent, hard work of each and every TSA employee to ensure the safety of travelers," said Simmons and Stanley in a joint statement. "They touch our lives daily, and as long as they are working without pay, the least we can do is provide them with a delicious meal to show our support."

Effective immediately, Rock & Brews restaurants will offer a choice of a free pulled pork sandwich or a strawberry fields salad to TSA employees who show their ID card.  The free meal offer will continue until the TSA workers get paid again. The offer is good for one meal a day at all free-standing Rock & Brews locations. Due to security limitations, airport, arena and casino locations are excluded.
