Food For Thought
Based on input from our members and friends, Wyoming Food For Thought Project has been chosen as our first quarterly Care N’ Share non-profit for October through December! During the quarter, we will be learning about, celebrating, and supporting this worthy program that is spearheading a grass-roots, local solution to the problem of hunger in our community.
Food for Thought does so much, including providing 670 weekend food bags to school children every week, sponsoring a weekly farmer’s market, growing community gardens, holding workshops on food prep and gardening, managing a seed library, and so much more. You can check out all their projects on their website, wyomingfoodforthoughtproject.org. With so much going on, they have a virtually limitless number of opportunities for volunteers to help out. How does volunteering work? According to director Jamie Purcell, you let them know when you have time, and they find you something to do!
On Wednesday, November 8th we have a service opportunity and potluck at Food for Thought, 900 St. John Street, Casper. We encourage everyone to come at (or anytime after) 4:00 pm to help pack weekend food bags, or come just for the potluck at 6:00 pm. Meet the FFT staff, help out, tour the FFT facilities, gardens, and the James Reeb Memorial Playground, and enjoy great food and good company.
Everyone is encouraged to bring a dish to share, and a can of soup to donate to Food for Thought to help fill weekend food bags distributed to Natrona County school children.
