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!


Wyoming Hunger Initiative has a simple mission: to end hunger in Wyoming.

Wyoming Hunger Initiative works to prevent food insecurity by increasing awareness and support for the work of local anti-hunger organizations statewide.

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 and was not a recipient of funding in the Spring Cycle of grants in 2022 is eligible for grants.

For the Fall 2022 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. Interested in the scoring rubric? You may download a copy here.

Grant applications will be accepted no later than 8:00 p.m. MT on Friday, July 29, 2022. Successful applicants will be notified by September 5, 2022.

If you are awarded a grant, a Project Update Report must be submitted to Wyoming Hunger Initiative no later than 8:00 PM MT on March 6, 2023 to meet the qualifications of this Wyoming Hunger Initiative infrastructure grant.
