LEWISBURG, WV (WVNS) — While schools are still closed due to COVID-19 concerns, Greenbrier County administrators are providing meals to their students. They are partnering with the Greater Greenbrier Long-Term Recovery Committee and the West Virginia National Guard.
Greenbrier County students can request a meal by 2 p.m. the day before by submitting an online form. Those without internet connection can call 304-968-9519 and leave a message.
Meals include milk, cereal, fruits, vegetables, and a protein.
Volunteers, like Special Education Teacher at Greenbrier West High School, Doug Nickell, helped deliver the meal bags to different areas around the county.
“Anytime we get an opportunity to help each other, we always have each others back,” Nickell said. “We’ve been through a lot here lately and this is just a wonderful opportunity to get our name back out and help out where we can.”
Meals can be picked up Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. from several locations around the county.
Locations include all 13 schools, Alvon UMC, Williamsburg Community Center, Renick Fire Hall, or the MARVEL Center. Delivery is also available to those who need it.
