An Open Letter to Gov. Justice: Please Ensure Children Have Access to Nutritious Food This Summer

Bluefield Daily Telegraph – Dear Governor Justice, Food for All is a broad and diverse coalition of individuals and organizations across West Virginia who believe no West Virginian should ever go without access to adequate, nutritious food. Read full letter here.

The Food for All coalition has dedicated itself to improving food security outcomes for our friends and neighbors across the Mountain State through public policy. Today, we write you to shine a light on the troubling food security situation of West Virginia’s most important group of people, our kids.

The closure of public schools in response to COVID-19 has heightened the realities children and families across our state face when it comes to food insecurity. We write today to urge you to allocate necessary funding from the CARES Act to ensure that every county in West Virginia can have the resources needed to provide summer meals along bus routes within their county.
