DANIELS, WV (WOAY) – Across the county, meals are being offered to help families feed children during the COVID-19 school shutdown.
“Here at Daniels, we start at 10 a.m. every day. The parents can come through and bring their students with them and they can pick up a food bag,” said School Counselor Jordan Wright.
May households rely on meals provided by school districts to feed their children throughout the day.
“I just feel very blessed to have the opportunity to let them know about this program. I don’t want them to ever feel like since the kids aren’t in school that we just thinking about them,” said Wright.
Daniels Elementary school serves over 400 students a day. Cafeteria Manager Joyce Carpenter says since the pandemic every one has stepped up their role but making lunches is part of her everyday job.
“I went to meetings with the other Cafeteria Managers to talk about what we needed to do and what we needed to get done. Then we talked to Teresa Baker and Mr. Price. Then we came here and got everything prep and ready to go,” said Carpenter.
Pick up times starts at 10 a.m. in front of the school.
