Governor Tomblin Holds Food Drive
“We are working around the clock with our food pantries to distribute much needed food and water to our families and neighbors. Resources at our food pantries are running critically low,“ Governor Tomblin said. “I ask those who can to provide much needed food.“
The food collected will be distributed to those in need through the Mountaineer Food Bank in Gassaway, WV and the Huntington Food Bank network of local pantries which are located in more than 50 West Virginia counties.
The most needed items include:
• Canned fruits
• Canned vegetables
• Canned meats (chicken, tuna, salmon)
• Canned soups (with pop tops)
• Beef stew
• Peanut butter
• Dry cereals
• Cream of wheat
• Baby food/formula
• Shelf-stable milk
• Bottled water
In addition, Volunteer West Virginia is accepting monetary donations to further support the food drive.
Monetary contributions should be written out and addressed to:
