West Virginia Strong Summer Food Assistance Programs
On June 4, 2020, Governor Justice announced improved coordination among all state, federal, and community nutritional resources as a part of his administration’s COVID-19 response. West Virginians in need are encouraged to use this tool to find resources in their community. If you’re unable to locate a site in your area, please call 2-1-1 and a member of the United Way team will coordinate with all state and community resources to find the assistance you need. We are here to help.
