Wyoming Hunger Initiative allocates $55,800 in infrastructure grants to antihunger nonprofits

WHI 12-16-20

First Lady Jennie Gordon’s Wyoming Hunger Initiative and the Wyoming
Governor’s Residence Foundation allocated $55,800 this week to anti-hunger nonprofit organizations for infrastructure needs through the Initiative’s second grant cycle of 2020.

Wyoming Hunger Initiative grants are intended to support infrastructure and longevity of antihunger organizations as well as long-term, sustainable solutions to food insecurity across the state. All funds distributed through the Wyoming Governor’s Residence Foundation are raised privately through donations. Because of the generosity of numerous corporations and private donors, a second round of grant funding was possible in 2020.
“The mission of Wyoming Hunger Initiative is to support the existing work of anti-hunger organizations across the state,” First Lady Jennie Gordon says. “It’s important to us that we allocate resources where they will have the greatest impact, as quickly as possible.”

Over 45 entities applied for Wyoming Hunger Initiative infrastructure grants and the Foundation is proud to announce that 23 applicant requests were funded. The following organizations are December 2020 recipients:
