Fayette County Schools to extend summer feeding program to the end of August

FAYETTE COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – While the school year is still uncertain, one thing that will remain consistent: Fayette County’s summer feeding program.

They will continue to feed students throughout the summer leading up to the tentative September 8 start date.

Students and their parents can continue to come to the schools to pick up their week-long meal packs on Thursdays.

“I think the intention always is that whether we’re in a virtual format or another format, that we find a way to meet the initial needs of our students, and feeding is an initial need,” Fayette County Superintendent Gary Hough said.

Right now, they have the final day of the feeding program pushed back to August 27.

Here are the current meal pickup locations for Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.:

Valley PK-8

Midland Trail High School

Meadow Bridge Elementary

Fayetteville PK-8

Oak Hill Middle.
