Mobile food pantry coming back to Wyoming County

CLEAR FORK, W. Va. (WVNS) -  

A mobile food pantry plans to serve people in Wyoming County for the second year.

 

Last year, the Mountaineer Food Bank Mobile Pantry was able to give out 28 tons of food to about 1,400 families across Wyoming County. This year, the food pantry will be back at Westside High School with the hopes to serve even more people around the county. 

 

Jim Cook, the Town of Oceana Recorder and a community activist, said this food pantry is a way to bring the entire community together around a great cause.

 

"It really helps the community and I love Wyoming Community. It's also a great volunteer opportunity for local organizations and groups," Cook explained.

 

Keith Stewart, Principal of Westside High School, said he is honored to provide a place for the food pantry, and looks forward to having his students help.

 

"We like to help Westside's community spirit. We love to get involved with the community and help them out, and our students are phenomenal when it comes to helping each other out and helping their community members out. This goes right along with the Westside spirit," Stewart said.

 

 

The food pantry will be at Westside High school once a month starting on April 14.
