Summer Food Service Program Information Session

  • March 7, 2018 at 9:30 am
  • Beckley Dream Center INC DBA Fishes and Loaves

Join the United Way of Southern West Virginia and representatives from the West Virginia Department of Education Office of Child Nutrition for an information session on how to get involved as a Summer Feeding Site in Southern West Virginia.

When school is out of session during the summer months, community programs and organizations are vital to ensuring children in West Virginia are still receiving the nutrition they need, especially in low-income areas. County boards of education, local government agencies and other nonprofit organizations can participate in the Summer Food Service Program, which ensures children in lower-income areas continue to receive free, nutritious meals during the summer when they do not have access to the programs that are available to them during the school year.

This information session will cover how YOUR ORGANIZATION can receive meal reimbursement and in some cases, start up/administrative funding, to help feed children in southern West Virginia. Whether you are already feeding kids through programming such as a Vacation Bible School program, or would like to know how you can, this meeting is for you!

Please RSVP to the United Way of Southern West Virginia at 304-253-2111.
