“We are deeply committed to providing nutrition education and programming to not only our students, but to those we serve in our community as well,” said Dr. Kelli Williams, chair of the university’s dietetics program. “We understand our federal employees may need a little extra help at this time, and we will keep our food pantry open to them as long as they need it.”

Around 18,000 federal government employees reside in West Virginia, out of the more than 800,000 across the country, according to CBS-affiliate WDTV.
