Help Those Who Are Helping Themselves
“WVFAP is a resource that has been so helpful to my family. Before I joined this group, with a teenager, my grocery budget was gone halfway through the month. Now, since joining and being able to receive this amount of groceries each week, my pantry has filled and is staying full. With it being so difficult to manage other household bills while on such a limited income, this program allows me to keep my children’s tummies full, and I can put more of my income into keeping my electric on. Nothing reduces stress like a pantry that has food in it. Thank you from our family...we are so very grateful!”

The need for programs to help eliminate hunger in our communities is crucial and can't be sustained without the support of donors. Families living at or under the federal poverty guidelines are adversely affected by the rising costs of food, goods, gas, living expenses, and the high rate of unemployment. It is important for families who struggle daily to have a reliable resource from which to draw from for nutritional foods on a weekly basis.
Many families in our communities are food insecure and struggle to make ends meet. Choices must be made between food and medicine, rent, or other vital necessities. With your contribution, WVFAP can offer relief to members like Julie and her family from the burden of having to choose.
