Hunger in Wyoming affects more people than you might think
According to FeedingAmerica, 73,830 people in Wyoming are struggling with hunger. 23,500 of those are children. This equates to 1 in 6 children in Wyoming struggling with hunger. The Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies says that homeless people account of for only 10% of their food recipients. The rest are everyday people.
Gobble Gobble Give
Last year, Fremont Motor Fiat, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM in Casper, WY took part in Gobble Gobble Give for the first time. A brand new RAM pickup truck with “RAM Out Hunger” sat in the showroom. Fremont Motors staff, customers and community members stuffed the truck with food donations.
In 2017 Fremont Motors in Casper collected 637 pounds of food. This provided the local community with 531 meals.
