Calling all anti-hunger warriors: together we can do more. 

Making a difference, one project at a time.

Solving community problems requires all hands on deck—and funding. Wyoming Hunger Initiative is ready to help!

Thank you for your interest in a grant through First Lady Jennie Gordon’s Wyoming Hunger Initiative. Our most recent grant cycle has closed, but we'll be sure to share everywhere when the next application period opens!
 

OUR MISSION:
Wyoming Hunger Initiative has a simple mission: to end childhood hunger in Wyoming. We believe childhood hunger in Wyoming is a problem that can be solved together. We work to prevent food insecurity by increasing awareness and support for the work of local anti-hunger organizations statewide and by advocating for a future where no child faces the school day on an empty stomach.


Nourished kids, healthy families, and thriving communities: that's the goal of Wyoming Hunger Initiative.
