About Wyoming Food For Thought Project


Our Story

Our journey began with a simple yet powerful belief: that access to nutritious food is a fundamental human right. Armed with this conviction, we set out to address the pressing issue of food insecurity in our community.

Our Weekend Food Bags Program stands as a beacon of hope for 750 children in Natrona and Converse counties, ensuring they have consistent access to nutrition during weekends and school breaks. But our impact extends beyond just providing meals. It's about fostering a sense of community, of belonging, of support.

Our Community Gardens offer more than just free produce; they serve as therapeutic spaces for individuals to connect with nature, to learn new skills, and to nourish their bodies and souls.

With the rising cost of living, our Free Pantry has become a lifeline for families and individuals on a fixed income. From seniors to the disabled, we ensure that everyone has access to the nutritious food they need to thrive.

And through our Shared Commercial Kitchen, we provide a platform for small food business owners to grow and thrive, supporting local entrepreneurs and strengthening our local economy.

But our story is not just about programs and initiatives; it's about the lives we've touched, the families we've helped, the communities we've strengthened. It's about the child who goes to bed with a full stomach and a brighter future ahead. It's about the countless individuals who have found hope, support, and dignity in our work.

As we continue our journey, we invite you to join us. Together, we can build a hunger-free community where everyone has access to the food they need to thrive. Together, we can make a difference.
