Food bank volunteers appreciated

Posted

Dear Editor:

April is a wonderful time of year. It is the start of spring and of growth — a new beginning. This last year has been hard on the people of  Wyoming, especially with COVID-19 and its impact on Wyomingites and food security.

April is National Volunteer Appreciation month to honor volunteers. Here at Food Bank of Wyoming we believe, “Wherever hunger rises, so can we.” Hunger has risen in Wyoming and you accepted the challenge. In order to get food to the people of Wyoming, Wyomingites have risen to the challenge: “Wherever hunger rises, so do volunteers.”

We at Food Bank of Wyoming would like to recognize the volunteers of Wyoming who came to our mobile food pantries and helped distribute boxes full of nutritious food. These volunteers worked an average of three to five hours on their Saturdays so that nutritious food could be given to families, seniors, veterans and others who are facing food insecurity.

Food Bank of Wyoming is what it says it is. It is a bank full of food that has food withdrawn and given to those with food insecurities. In order to continue Mobile Food Pantries, which feeds all of Wyoming, volunteers are so desperately needed. We are honored and proud to say thank you to every volunteer in your community who answered the call to feed our wonderful family — Wyoming.

With much gratitude,

Barb Maluchnik

Food Bank of Wyoming and all its employees
