Fayette County’s summer feeding program expected to begin Thursday

FAYETTE COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – Because of the pandemic, the governor has encouraged schools to continue feeding their students throughout the summer. 

Fayette County’s summer feeding program is expected to begin on Thursday as parents and students can pick up their week-long meal packs from 10 a.m. -11 a.m. at the following locations: Valley PK-8, Midland Trail High School, Meadow Bridge Elementary, Fayetteville PK-8 and Oak Hill Middle. 

“We’ll be happy to try and keep that program going all summer long,” Superintendent Terry George said. “We want to make sure our kids are well-fed, well taken care of so that when we get them back to school in the fall, we want them to be well-nourished and ready to go.”

Fayette County Schools plans to do this every Thursday until July 30.
