Billy Brown, food pantry manager at Poverty Resistance in Casper, unloads boxes of potatoes from Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies in April. 

Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies and its sponsor, Wyoming Farm Credit Services, will hold a mobile pantry food distribution from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday in Lusk. 

The food bank plans to have enough food for 150 families.

Distribution will take place at the Niobrara County Fairgrounds, 4080 U.S. Highway 20. The food bank will be distributing approximately 20,000 pounds of food equivalent to 16,667 meals to Niobrara County families in need.

Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies is the only food bank in Wyoming. Reliable access to food is essential for strong communities, stable families and a well-educated workforce, and fosters independent living for the elderly, according to the organization.
