PRINCETON, WV (WVNS) — The Mercer County Board of Education announced its partnership with the federally funded Summer Food Service Program. The announcement was made on Wednesday, June 3, 2020.

Breakfast and lunch will be given to children who are 18 and younger. Krissy Zickafoose, the site coordinator at Princeton Senior High, said the meal package will contain five days of breakfast and lunches.

“We have frozen food items, we have sausage, biscuit, omelettes, breakfast pizzas. On the non-perishable side, we have chips, cookies, pop tarts, granola bars, breakfast bars, things of that nature, anything that a kid would want to eat. We’ve got some good stuff here. It is nutritious, but it tastes great as well,” Zickafoose said.

Food pick-up locations are listed below:

  • Bluefield Intermediate School
  • Princeton High School
  • Spanishburg School
  • Montcalm Elementary

Pick-ups began on Wednesday, June 10, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. Parents will be asked to pull in and open the trunks of the vehicles for easy loading.
