WILLIAMSON – Coalfield Community Action Partnership(CAP), in conjunction with WVU Extension Service and Mingo County Schools, is planning to host the Energy Express program this year at five locations.
The number of sites offered is based on the amount of funding that is available each year for the program. Anticipated sites for 2016 include Dingess, Gilbert, Kermit, Matewan and Williamson.
Energy Express is a summer program for children focusing on literacy activities for student participants. The program is offered during the summer months as a bridge for children’s access to literacy activities between the school years.
In addition, Coalfield Cap is also operating the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) at the same five locations. This program provides family style breakfast and lunch for children ages 18 and under at no cost to the families. Children do not have to be enrolled in Energy Express in order to access the SFSP.
SFSP is provided through collaboration between Coalfield CAP and USDA/WV Office of Child Nutrition.
Both programs will be operational for children Monday through Friday beginning June 27 and concluding on August 5.
