The Wyoming Food for Thought Project hosts and participates in many different fundraising events throughout the year, from food drives to community events, the annual Turkey Drive, the annual week-long Toy Drive and more! Volunteers are a vital part in ensuring that we not only get the Wyoming Food for Thought Project name out into the community, but that we raise as many monetary and food donations as possible to maintain our various programs.

City Wide Food Drive
The City Wide Food Drive is an opportunity for businesses and individuals in our community to help more than 1,100 local kids eat well during Spring Break. The City Wide Food Drive is also an opportunity for businesses to challenge each other.
Wyoming Food for Thought Project hosts an annual gala event every fall called Localicious. It is a time where we can celebrate all that we have accomplished in the last year, over the bounty of produce we grew in our Urban Farm, and with locally sourced foods created by a local chef.
Localicious 2023 slated for Mid-September!
Birds n Bucks Food Drive
Each year, the Wyoming Food for Thought Project and Townsquare Media partner up to host the annual Birds n Bucks Food Drive, to assist local food pantries in getting enough food to hand out for Thanksgiving. People can donate turkeys, fixings, or make a monetary donation.
