Description

This conference is organized in an effort to build awareness of hunger in West Virginia and educate the public on the programs and benefits MFB offers our agencies in the fight to end hunger. At the HUNGER SUMMIT, workshops and sessions are held to provide insight on the hunger issue as well as to educate on the programs, policies and procedures of the Mountaineer Food Bank. This year’s summit will place focus on “Igniting Change”. Like last year, we have decided to keep our invite list open to include community organizations and businesses as well individuals interested in being an ambassador for hunger awareness across the state.

Comedian Larry Weaver uses clean humor, funny anecdotes, and emotionally charged stories to delight and entertain audiences.

His live performances include tales of growing up in the country, home remedies, family gatherings, marriage, traveling, trying to eat right, and more. Larry's lightning-fast wit is always on display as he playfully banters with the audience.

  • Entertaining: delivers non-stop laughs from beginning to end.
  • Engaging: interacts with the audience without embarrassing attendees.
  • Experienced: uses his mastery of the craft to improve your event.

A favorite at corporate events, conventions, and churches, Larry's humor is highly professional, culturally sensitive, and hilariously funny.
