MORGANTOWN — AP human geography students at Morgantown High School are getting to put skills learned in the classroom to real-world use while helping their community.

Teacher Dan Berry said that students are using geographic information science (GIS), to determine where food deserts in Monongalia County are.

A food desert is an area without access to healthy food, Berry said.

“The ultimate goal is to come up with enough data and maps to tell Pantry Plus More where food deserts are,” Berry said.

Pantry Plus More is a local nonprofit organization that has put food pantries in several area schools and distributes food across Monongalia County.
