Volunteer With Us
Volunteers are vital to the continuance and completion of many, many tasks here at Wyoming Food for Thought Project. From packing weekend food bags, delivering the bags, organizing the food room, and working in the garden, to processing and dehydrating donated goods in the kitchen, every job is important.
We would like to personally thank each and every volunteer who has come through the door. You are getting us one step closer to alleviating hunger within Natrona County with every hour you have dedicated to us. Thank you.
