CHARLESTON, WV –
In recognition of the efforts being made across the state to end hunger in West Virginia, Gov. Jim Justice issued a proclamation Tuesday, designating March 5, 2019 as Hunger Free WV Day.
The Governor’s Deputy Chief of Staff, Ann Urling, read the proclamation to a group of onlookers with several nonprofit organizations in the Upper Rotunda of the State Capitol Building.
In his proclamation, Gov. Justice noted that “West Virginia has a strong network of non-profits, including two food banks and over 600 community feeding programs whose focus is strengthening communities; together over 21 million pounds of food are distributed to those in need each year.”
