Cleanup crews will throw away eleven thousand cases of spoiled turkey, pizza and mozzarella cheese following a roof collapse at a state warehouse.

The West Virginia Department of Agriculture stores about 100 thousand cases of food at the Charleston site. It's shipped to schools, food banks and child nutrition programs around the state.

Water damage caused the roof to partially collapse Thursday night, and now between 500 thousand and one million dollars worth of food is headed for the landfill.

State officials say they expect the loss to only cause minor shortages at some food agencies.
