|“The reason I put all those resources into programs like these is because I felt we needed to put a stake in the sand,” Gov. Justice said. “I said, by God, we’re not going to forget those that have given so much to us and we’re surely not going to leave them hungry.”|
In August, Gov. Justice also debuted a fleet of 16 new Ford F-150 trucks, which utilize hot and cold food storage systems, for use in senior nutrition meal delivery programs.
After today's event, a total of 43 brand-new food delivery vehicles are now on West Virginia roadways, helping more senior citizens receive more meals faster than ever.
“Our wonderful seniors have given every one of us so much over the years and things are especially difficult today with this terrible virus. Think about how difficult it would be for a senior to decide to go to the store right now,” Gov. Justice said. “I thank all those who are connected, in any way, to serving and helping our seniors, including our Legislature. It means so much.”
