Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies Food Distribution in Gillette, WY
Written by broebling on July 3, 2019
Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies (WFBR) is very saddened to hear about the mine layoffs that are affecting Northeast Wyoming. We have had donors, community members, and government officials asking how they can help the miners at this time.
WFBR encourages anyone needing food assistance to reach out to our partner agencies in your area http://wyomingfoodbank.org/wp-content/uploads/Partnering-Agencies-List-2019.pdf. Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies and several generous funders will work to keep our partner’s shelves full while Campbell County works through this.
Through the generosity of donors, WFBR will be hosting two mobile pantries on Monday, July 29 and Monday, August 19 with distribution to the public to start at 1:00 p.m. and end at 6:00 p.m. The mobile pantries will be at the Family Life Church parking lot. There will be enough food available for 700 families. For more information go to http://wyomingfoodbank.org/mobile-pantries-wyoming/
WFBR will also be recruiting for volunteers to help with these distributions. Please keep an eye on our Volunteer Hub at http://wyomingfoodbank.org/volunteers/ Again, if you know someone who needs food now, please contact our local partners.
