HUNTINGTON – After a winter break, Facing Hunger Foodbank will restart its mobile food distribution in February.

After a year of using the mobile distribution sites even more than usual, said Cyndi Kirkhart, executive director of Facing Hunger, that she hopes it will sites will continue to help bring food to tables in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky.

The distribution sites planned so far:

  • February 11 – Hungry Lambs, 622 Stratton Street, Logan
  • March 25 – House of Hope, 1891 US Rt. 65, Delbarton, West Virginia
  • April 1 – Harts Community Center, 121 Harts Creek Road, Harts, West Virginia
  • April 8 – Cabwaylingo, 1385 Left Fork Dunlow Bypass, Dunlow, West Virginia
  • April 15 – Goodwill from the KYOWVA area, 105 Virginia Avenue, Huntington

The sites runs from 11am to 1pm, or until all food has been distributed. Registration starts at 10:00 AM. Some form of identification is required showing that you are a resident of the county.

The mobile distributions sites offer fresh produce and meat, which Kirkhart said are popular.

She said the mobile food sites also help them reach out to those they otherwise wouldn’t, including those far in the catchment area or those who are hesitant to turn to a more traditional food bank.

Kirkhart said the pandemic increased their use of the mobile distribution sites because it is easier to take physical distance.

“It’s also a great volunteer activity,” she said. “We have a core group that always comes with us for the sites. We really enjoy that. We have more face-to-face interactions to make sure we serve people in the way that works best for them. And we can see the impact immediately. “

Facing Hunger serves Cabell, Boone, Jackson, Kanawha, Lincoln, Logan, McDowell, Mason, Mingo, Putnam, Wayne and Wyoming counties in West Virginia; Boyd, Greenup, Lawrence, and Martin counties in Kentucky; and Lawrence County, Ohio. Call 304-523-6029. Distribution sites, mobile and permanent, can be found by province at www.facinghunger.com.
