FAYETTE COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – For nearly two weeks, the Coda Mountain Academy has given out between 800 and a thousand meals every day.
Today, volunteers celebrate a new double-stack convention oven to expedite the process. The workers start cooking lunch at 5 a.m. every morning. Now, they won’t be as rushed when getting food in and out of the oven. The new oven also gives them some wiggle room when it comes to creating a menu.
“It allows us to learn do a lot more baking in case we would like to make pizzas or something,” said Lauren Floyd. “We couldn’t do that in the ovens we had before, so it allows us to diversify our menu options a little bit.”
Coda Mountain Academy plans to open two new locations in Summersville, but it needs more food donations to keep up their effort to feed the community. You can drop off donations at 305 Main Street in Oak Hill.
