EDUCATION CONTINUES TO ACCEPT ORGANIZATION PARTNERS TO FEED KIDS THROUGH
The West Virginia Department of Education is continuing to seek partnerships
with organizations across the state to help feed children during the
summer months. Just as during the COVID-19 pandemic, when school is out
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 are encouraged to participate in the Summer Food
Service Program, which ensures children (ages 18 and under) facing food
insecurity continue to receive free, nutritious meals during the summer
when they do not have access the School Breakfast or National School
Lunch programs. Sponsors typically represent schools, churches, community
centers, libraries, housing complexes, and summer camps.
