County Profiles

The 2021 County Profiles with key COVID-19 nutrition assistance indicators are here

Data collected from the WV Department of Health and Human Resources, WV Department of Education, U.S. Census Bureau, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and original research conducted by the WVU Food Justice Lab inform these updated PDF profiles. Stay tuned for further updates to these profiles taking into account municipal and county level disbursements through the 2021 American Rescue Plan (ARPA). For questions about this data contact


The profiles and story maps can be used as an education resource and planning tool in compliment of the Nourishing Networks curriculum.
