Wyoming is an all-hands-on-deck kind of place.
And our farms and ranches are in the fight.
"The farmer has to be an optimist or he wouldn’t still be a farmer."
HUNGER IS A PROBLEM THAT CAN BE SOLVED, TOGETHER.
Facing the challenge of combating food insecurity in Wyoming requires creative thinking. Now.
The ultimate goal of Food from the Farm + Ranch is to find Wyoming solutions to Wyoming challenges. By utilizing the resources of Wyoming producers, we can meet the increased need for healthy, locally-grown protein and produce across the state. This strategy is working, with tens of thousands of pounds of food donated to food pantries in all 23 of Wyoming's counties since Wyoming Hunger Initiative launched in 2019.
Being a producer myself, my initial vision for Wyoming Hunger Initiative was to encompass a component of agriculture that would be part of the solution to food insecurity in our state. I am beyond excited about the immediate partnership between so many entities working together to ensure longevity of Food from the Farm + Ranch.
