The Mountaineer Food Bank, along with the Salvation Army of Weirton, handed out fresh produce and other special items to anyone that needed it on Friday
They were there for most of the day, and handed out everything that they had to offer.
Not only does the Mountaineer Food Bank help families financially, but it also helps keep families healthier.
“We were able to bring in apples and potatoes from everywhere to get them in to West Virginia. That’s what we want to do is bring more food into West Virginia and use more food from West Virginia as well,” said Chad Morrison, Executive Director of Mountaineer Food.
Morrison said that the food bank will be holding events like this across the mountain state.
