Raleigh County Schools changing meal distribution plan

BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – Raleigh County Schools has been using Tamarack to help supply student meal packs, but that will change this week.

Superintendent David Price says Tamarack only had the capacity to supply about 15,000 meals and the need is much greater, so they will be going back to a multi-location program.

“Very limited with what we were able to do, but we were thankful for Tamarack for what they were able to do for us to get out what we were able to get out,” he said. “This week, we’re in much better shape. We were able to connect with a few of our vendors that weren’t able to supply us last week.”

The distribution will take place on Thursday. Times and locations are still to be determined, but Price says they will get that information out as soon as possible. Students must be present and everyone will be encouraged to stay in the car.
