The Wyoming Hunger Initiative is Turning Soil Into Solutions
April 7, 2022
Some people get excited about the April showers that bring May flowers, but I’m looking forward to the April snowfalls that bring May gardens! Wyoming Hunger Initiative recently launched its second season of Grow a Little Extra by distributing six varieties of vegetable seeds proven to thrive in Wyoming’s growing season to University of Wyoming Extension offices across the state.
The premise of the program is simple: fresh produce can be expensive and difficult to procure for food pantries. So, we’re asking gardeners of all ages to donate their extra produce throughout the summer. Last year gardeners accepted the challenge to the tune of 10,000 lbs of donated produce! That means fresh, local food for anti-hunger organizations throughout Wyoming to distribute to our neighbors in need.
You can pick up (free!) seeds at your county’s Extension office, or simply donate some of what you’re already planning on growing—no matter what, it’s pretty magical to see soil turn into solutions in the fight against food insecurity.
Together, we can end hunger in Wyoming.
With love and gratitude,
First Lady of Wyoming
