FAYETTE COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – Meal distribution for remote and virtual learners will take place on Thursday, Sept. 10 at each school in Fayette County.
Every school will hand out meal packs from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., but schools at the Oak Hill campus will operate on a staggered schedule.
The Oak Hill distribution schedule is as follows:
Oak Hill High School: 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.
Oak Hill Middle School: 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
New River Intermediate: 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
New River Primary: 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.
The purpose of staggering the Oak Hill campus was to cut back on traffic.
Andrew Pense, the director of child nutrition for Fayette County, says they will be handing five-day packs for breakfast and lunch, and then they will re-evaluate what handout will look like next week depending on the county’s status.
He says the schools have been working on incorporating more fresh, locally grown food by enlisting the help of a Hico farmer.
“We have a local farmer, Thomas Franklin, from Homegrown farms who is providing us with cherry tomatoes and peppers. Earlier this summer, he also provided us with sweet corn.” 10
Bus drivers will also be coming throughout the county at these stops and will be there from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.:
Mt. Hope Fire Department
Kelly’s Corner in Pax
Church of God in Kincaid
Old Beckwith School
Old Gatewood School
