Alderson area teachers, community members pitch in for students’ lunch during strike

Digital Desk

While the teacher walkout continues, some Greenbrier County students’ stomachs were satisfied with savory snacks to make up for the absence of a cafeteria.

With help from the Alderson community, teachers from the area spent their time at the Old Greenbrier Baptist Church feeding kids pizza, chips, peaches, and juice boxes for the day. Alderson Elementary teacher Anna Osborne was one of them.

“We know that families really are relying on the schools to provide a lot of their food in the course of the day,” Osborne said. “We just feel like it’s really important that kids have the option to get food if they’re not at school.”

Free lunches will be served at the Alderson Community Center beginning Wednesday.
