Even though the West Virginia Office of Child Nutrition is leading the nation in serving nutritionally balanced meals to its students, these same children still know hunger.
More than 1 in 4 West Virginia children live in a household that does not have sufficient access to food. 60% of West Virginia school aged children qualify for free or reduced priced school meals.
That's more than 173,000 children whose family household income is below or nearly below the federal poverty level. Sadly, the meals provided at school may be the only food many children have access to each day.
Our children deserve to have their most basic needs met in order to live vibrant, productive lives. We must end childhood hunger in West Virginia... that's where West Virginia Feed to Achieve will make a long-lasting impact!
