CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Several county school systems in West Virginia are transitioning this week to what’s being described as more efficient models to feed students and their families with the continuing school shutdown connected to the coronavirus.
According to information released by the office of state School Superintendent Clayton Burch, beginning Monday, “most counties will move to distributing multi-day meal boxes that will be replenished each week. These boxes will provide breakfast and lunch for five days (the extent of the regular school week) for children.”
Burch said if families have unmet food needs that can get information about alternate community sites and food banks by contacting the United Way at 211.
