Food Bank of Wyoming ensures Wyoming neighbors have access to food all summer

As days grow longer and kids welcome their summer break, food insecurity persists — no matter the season. From hunger relief partners to mobile pantries, Food Bank of Wyoming has a network of food distributions and programs to ensure every Wyoming neighbor has access to fresh, nourishing food at no cost all summer long.
“It’s always our focus to make food accessible to anyone experiencing food insecurity and that’s ultimately the goal with our programming – ensuring anyone that needs food can easily get it, regardless of their location or time of year. On top of that, we strive to offer nutritious options in addition to pantry staples,” says Food Bank of Wyoming’s executive director, Rachel Bailey.
Four ways Food Bank of Wyoming is providing access to nutritious food this summer:
Hunger relief partners
Food Bank of Wyoming collaborates with over 150 hunger relief partners across the state, including food pantries and relief organizations, to offer no-cost food options to neighbors in need during the summer and throughout the year. Additionally, the Food Bank works with some of their hunger relief partners to rescue food from grocery stores, retailers, and convenience stores that might otherwise go to waste.
Mobile Pantries
Need isn’t always conveniently located, especially in Wyoming’s rural and expansive landscape. To address this, Food Bank of Wyoming deploys 19 mobile pantries throughout the state. Many neighbors rely on these distributions for essential food.
Food For Kids
Food Bank of Wyoming provides nourishing food to kids and families through the Totes of Hope™ Program and supports hunger relief partners’ initiatives such as Friday Food Bags in Cheyenne and Wyoming Food for Thought in Casper.
With one in five kids in Wyoming experiencing food insecurity (19.4% of the population under age 18), these programs fill the meal gap many kids face when school is out of session.
FRESH Express Route
The FRESH Express Route will continue making essential produce deliveries to more than 50 Hunger Relief Partners across Wyoming. With a dedicated FRESH Express Route driver and an over-the-road truck and trailer, Food Bank of Wyoming can continue to reach partners more frequently with nutritious food this summer.

Through these programs and initiatives, Food Bank of Wyoming is addressing the challenge of hunger. However, it takes the power of a community to nourish neighbors in need.
