Wyoming Food for Thought Project began in October 2012 in response to a needed solution to the holes in the hunger safety net.
Our mission is to create a local solution to hunger, whereby everyone - especially children - has direct and equitable access to good and healthy food,
all year round.
Wyoming Food for Thought Project operates through involvement of food, and offers three core initiatives: Provide, Educate, and Empower. Click the links below for more information.

Our Program Center
Wyoming Food for Thought Project was headquartered in north Casper, in the old Winter Memorial Presbytery Church.
Today we are in transition as we remodel the old North Casper (Lincoln) Elementary School located at 1014 Glenarm. This facility will become our forever home and will be known as the Food for Thought Urban Food Center.
For now, we are housed at the Food for Thought Commercial Kitchen and Food Hall located at 420 West 1st Street in downtown Casper.

The Wyoming Food for Thought Project is an independent, local non-profit organization, focused on the concept of "Food Justice". Through our programs, we seek to forge partnerships and infuse the community with opportunities to access affordable and healthy food for everyone, regardless of socio-economic status.
The Wyoming Food for Thought Project was started in November 2012 as a solution to the holes in the hunger safety net. Led by Jamie Purcell, Executive Director, WFFTP seeks to work toward ending hunger as part of an overall community effort to alleviate poverty. We are looking for solutions to hunger on the local level, and by working with existing programs and organizations, the holes in the hunger safety net are shrinking.
With all the work that's been done in the realm of hunger and food access, there is still much to accomplish, but it starts today with you and the Wyoming Food for Thought Project.
