On a daily basis, Mountaineer Food Bank distributes over 44,000 meals to hungry people. In 2016, 11,420,000 meals were distributed (13.7 million pounds of food) through our network of member agencies.
The challenges that those in poverty face are heavy, with nutritious food often being on the chopping block, when faced with those tough choices. 1 in 6 people in West Virginia will ask that question….can we afford to eat today?
Through our member network and programs like our Veterans Food Pantry, School Food Pantries and Mobile Pantry, Mountaineer Food Bank has become well positioned to push farther than ever before in meeting the meal gap in West Virginia. These programs, along with new intervention programs for seniors, will allow us to access the most vulnerable populations in our state.
In 2017, our push to meet the meal gap will reach new heights with 12,500,000 meals needing distributed, over 15 million pounds of food.
Every $1 donated helps us provide up to 8 meals in West Virginia, and every meal counts.
THIS YEAR WE WILL HAVE A VERY SPECIAL GUEST....
THE WVU MOUNTAINEER WILL BE AT THAT DAM RACE
