Hunger Free WV Day 2023

Hunger Free WV is a collaborative effort between Facing Hunger Foodbank and Mountaineer Foodbank. Together, we are working toward a Hunger Free West Virginia, where everyone who lives here can access the food they choose, where they want, when they need it.

This year we celebrated Hunger Free WV Day on Thursday, January 26th with a day at the WV State Capitol. Representatives from both Facing Hunger and Mountaineer Food Bank (the state’s only 2 food banks) were in attendance for the legislative session. We had a productive day with many wonderful opportunities to discuss our mission with the delegates that represent districts in our service area. We told the stories of those that we serve, and their firsthand experience living with food insecurity in West Virginia.

Governor Justice issued a proclamation declaring January 26, 2023 as Hunger Free West Virginia Day!
