Catholic Charities of West Virginia's WellnessWorks food pantry program aims to promote healthy nutrition through education, direct service and advocacy. The approach is a new way to address the health and nutritional needs of individuals seeking food assistance.

Lifebridge AmeriCorps worker Karen Matthews, who has been working with the mobile food pantry, will lead a tree planting ceremony and brief program at 12:15 p.m. in remembrance of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. A fruit tree will be planted as a reminder of the importance of good nutrition to promote wellness.
