Children and seniors come together in Jefferson County to improve health

RANSON, W.Va. — A summer feeding program in Jefferson County could become a model for the rest of the country after U.S. Department of Agriculture officials visited the Ranson Senior Center Wednesday.

State Senator John Unger said they are looking at the Feed to Achieve summer feeding program because it does something that is not happening anywhere else in the country.

“This is one of the first programs where they brought seniors and children together with meals and activities over the summer. U.S. Department of Agriculture’s wanting to push that,” said Unger.

The volunteer driven program works with the Jefferson County Council on Aging and the state office of child nutrition to provide the meals.

Unger said participants in both age groups have benefited.
