The department of education released the list of feeding sites Monday, at the Boys and Girls Club in Charleston -- one of the summer's feeding sites.
Mike Farmer, program coordinator for the Boys and Girls Club, lauded the program's benefits for low-income kids in Charleston and throughout West Virginia, while framed by a collection of kid art hanging on the wall behind him.
The coloring sheet prompted kids to color their "favorite summer foods!!!" In crayon, the students had gone to work drawing grapes and cherries, watermelons and ice cream cones.
"A nutritious meal is important for them to learn, to play and to remain active of the summer months," Farmer said.
At the Boys and Girls Club, instructors concentrate on teaching kids the merits of healthy eating - and then feeding them healthy food.
"They cook the peaches so they're so good," said six-year-old Georgia Jenkins, as she sat down to her lunch.
Across from her, Rickhya Rhodes, 7, was most excited about the spaghetti -- but also about the carrots.
"I like vegetables," she said. "And fruits. And pizza."
