A Free Meal Being Offered To Students Tonight and Thursday In Fayetteville

FAYETTEVILLE (WOAY) – The Oak Hill Kroger is supporting Coda Mountain Academy, which is providing two free community meals this week.

The store has donated $500 of food to Coda Mountain Academy, which is preparing the meals to be served at 6 o’clock tonight and 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Fayetteville Christ Fellowship, 2855 Maple Ave, Fayetteville, WV.

“While the meals are open to the community, we are specifically inviting students who have been unable to eat their meals at schools these past few days,” said Esther Morey, director of Coda Mountain Academy. “The Oak Hill Kroger is delighted to support the work of Coda Mountain Academy,” said Matt Diederich, store manager. “We want the students in our community to have access to healthy food.”

In West Virginia, nearly one in four children are in poverty. For many of them, free or reduced-price school breakfasts and lunches are the main meals of the day.

Coda Mountain Academy is a non-profit charitable organization that has been providing services to Fayette County for 11 years. Coda Mountain Academy offers the community a variety of summer camp and after-school programs in music, robotics, cooking and art and adult/family classes, including sewing, cooking, finance and tutoring. The program targets the at-risk underserved population of Fayette County. More info at codamountain.com.
