The West Virginia Farm Bureau will celebrate Food Check-Out Week Feb. 17-23, providing Ronald McDonald Houses across the state with thousands of dollars worth of food and supplies, the bureau recently announced.

 

In this annual event, bureau members will collect donations and volunteer to shop at area grocery stores, purchasing meats, non-perishable foods and paper products to donate to each Ronald McDonald House in West Virginia, according to the bureau's news release.

 

These houses are located in Charleston, Huntington and Morgantown and provide overnight lodging, cooking, bathing and laundry facilities for families of children undergoing treatment at local hospitals.

 

The Huntington shopping event will take place at 10 a.m. Feb. 21 at the Barboursville Kroger. The Charleston event will take place 10 a.m. Feb. 22 at the Kanawha City Kroger.

 

Lastly, the Morgantown event will take place at 10 a.m. Feb. 23 at the Patteson Drive Kroger. Groceries will be delivered to the local Ronald McDonald House following each shopping event.

 

Last year, the news release continues, the bureau donated more than $25,000 in cash and supplies to stock pantries in each Ronald McDonald House.
