ESSENTIAL EVERYONE: Feeding Students, Door-to-Door

Only on WBOY.com

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – “Just because school’s not in and kids are at home, doesn’t mean they all of a sudden have food.”

Those are the words of Pantry Plus More’s Roark Sizemore. The team at Pantry Plus More shifted their business model during COVID-19. Instead of filling pantries at local schools, they shifted to a delivery model. Right now, an all-volunteer team is working nearly every day to provide deliveries to families on Monday and Thursday.

Each box contains three breakfasts, three lunches and three dinners for a family of four. They are also supplying 13 to 15,000 pounds of food every third Saturday during mobile giveaways.

Sizemore and his team were nominated for this week’s Essential Everyone.
