Help Feed Wyoming
Hunger and food insecurity has increased significantly in the past year, now affecting more than 1 in 8 Wyoming neighbors, 23,130 of whom are children. 37.64% of all children in Wyoming qualify for the Free and Reduced School Lunch Program. 11.11% of Wyoming seniors live in poverty. For families who are struggling with the multitude of household expenses, when household bills are due, children need school supplies, or prescriptions must be filled, the first item to be trimmed from the family budget is typically food.
We have three 53’ semi-tractor trailer rigs that travel an average of 225,000 miles per year, delivering food and supplies to partner hunger relief agencies across the entire state.
96¢ of every $1.00 received goes toward the purchase and distribution of food and every dollar raised for Wyoming stays here in Wyoming. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, we rely on donations from grants, individuals, corporations and organizations to help us run our food distribution programs.
Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies is the only food bank in Wyoming. In partnership with more than 245 hunger relief agencies statewide, we distribute more than 19,283 meals each day. Last year we distributed 9,287,525 pounds of food, or the equivalent of 7,038,203 meals.
Fighting Hunger ~ Feeding Hope is Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies' primary food distribution program serving hunger-relief agencies statewide. Other programs include Children’s Backpack Program, Mobile Pantry Program, Grocery Rescue Program, Food for Schools, Summer Feeding Services Program and three USDA hunger relief programs including The Emergency Food Assistance Program.
