April 2, 2020
Wyoming Statewide Release, April 3rd, 2020 — Now, more than ever, Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies is working hard to get fresh and nutritious foods to all families impacted by the current COVID-19 event.
Aside from providing support to over 180 partners across the state, Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies has scheduled an increased number of mobile pantries to help those households in greatest need of food. During the first week of April, Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies' Drive-thru Mobile Pantries served over 6,000 food-insecure Wyoming residents at just five locations.
These mobile pantries reflect a new "drive-thru" model that protects the public, our staff, and our volunteers, during this time of social distancing. Each household will receive a box of shelf-stable items, a bag of fresh produce, and a bag of protein products. If you are picking up for another household please prepare and bring the appropriate completed and signed proxy form.
Dates, times or locations may change due to weather or logistical concerns, so please check our website for more information and for any updates on mobile pantries in your area. http://wyomingfoodbank.org/mobile-pantries-wyoming/
Families in need of food can contact Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies’ local partner agencies, a list of locations and phone numbers is available on our website at http://wyomingfoodbank.org/wp-content/uploads/Partnering-Agencies-List-2019.pdf
During this time, all volunteers must be pre-registered. Volunteers are needed to assist with set up, to help with food distribution, and to help clean up at some of these events. Please let Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies know if we can count on your volunteer efforts by contacting Myriam at 307-232-4020.
Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies has scheduled the following Mobile Pantries across the state to help alleviate the food insecurity brought on my the COVID-19 event.
