About Wyoming Food For Thought Project


Our Story

We began in October 2012 in response to a needed solution to the holes in the hunger safety net. Led by Jamie Purcell, Executive Director, Food for Thought seeks to work toward ending hunger as part of an overall community effort to alleviate poverty. We provide food accessibility resources, education through workshops and classes, and empowerment through SNAP, Double Up Food Bucks and more.


Wyoming Food for Thought Project is continually evolving and is working hard to bring new and exciting opportunities to the Casper community.


We are trailblazers. We are the change we want to see in our community, and we want you to join us.

We are headquartered in north Casper in the old Winter Memorial Presbytery Church. When we first moved into this location, it was nothing more than a disbanded church with a small community garden area. But since then it has been transformed into the Food for Thought Program Center and Urban Farm that offers an array of programs and resources dedicated to community food security.


Mission & Vision

Wyoming Food for Thought Project is a local grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to creating systems that enable all members of our community to access good, healthy, affordable food year-round. To do this, we focus our work on three main initiatives:


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.

We envision a world where diverse Wyoming communities feel connected to the land and each other, are proactive in the learning and implementation of food procurement, and everyone has access to fresh, local, healthy, affordable food at all times.
