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.

Any organization within the state of Wyoming whose mission aligns with the mission of the Wyoming Hunger Initiative is eligible for grants.

For the 2020/2021 grant cycle, individual grants will be awarded from $500- $5000.


Grant monies can be used for projects and equipment. While requests for start-up costs will be considered, we will not award monies for food or salaries.

Grant applications are due no later than 8:00 PM MT on Monday, April 20, 2020. Successful applicants will be notified on Monday, May 18, 2020.
