Think a hog can't change the world?
Think again.

FAIR TO FORK

Join us in going whole hog in the fight against
food insecurity in Wyoming!

Sources of high-quality protein are notoriously expensive and difficult to procure for local anti-hunger organizations. In partnership with University of Wyoming Extension 4-H and FFA, Fair to Fork works to purchase secondary hogs through a lottery selection, from every county in Wyoming. Wyoming Hunger Initiative will purchase the pig, ensure the meat is processed by a USDA or state-inspected participating facility, and then coordinate with the 4-H or FFA member to donate it to a local anti-hunger organization in the county of origin.

 

All Fair to Fork donations must be processed by a USDA or state-inspected processing facility. See the list below. If you would like Wyoming Hunger Initiative to assist in setting up a processing date, please contact our office at 307-274-0365.
