List of Summer Feeding Programs in Southern WV

By June 28, 2019 No Comments

For many children, summer is a time of summer camps, activities, pool days, and maybe even a vacation to the beach. For many others, however, summer can be a time of less fun: hunger, isolation, and worry. The West Virginia Department of Education’s Office of Child Nutrition sponsors the Summer Food Service Program, where community organizations can serve free meals to children during the summer. In addition to this taxpayer-funded program, there are various other privately-funded summer feeding programs with the region.

This list was compiled by our Information and Referral Specialist, Marsha Shonk. Should your family need assistance with any other needs, such as food pantries, baby pantries, housing, utility assistance, etc., please dial 2-1-1. You will be connected to our office and we will direct you to organizations that can help!
