Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies will hold a mobile pantry food distribution from 10 a.m. to noon Monday at the Glenrock Volunteer Fire Department.
The food bank, along with an anonymous sponsor, plans to have enough food for 175 families. Organizers expect the items available will include fresh fruits and vegetables, pasta, spaghetti sauce, macaroni and cheese, diced peas and carrots, canned soup, toothpaste, assorted meat, ready meal kits and personal items.
The food bank plans to distribute 5,000 pounds of food to Converse County families in need.
Located in Converse County between Douglas and Casper, Glenrock has been hit particularly hard by the energy slowdown in the last two years. It’s also home to a large percentage of senior citizens, many of whom find it a hardship to travel to Douglas or Casper regularly for staples.
Folks lined up around the block for a similar food giveaway in Glenrock in early January.
Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies is in need of volunteers for set up, distribution and clean up. Those interested in volunteering may contact Ashley Nickolai at 232-4016 or email@example.com.
