Earlier this month, Johnson County Friends Feeding Friends received a very generous donation of 300 beef sticks, courtesy of the Wyoming Hunger Initiative’s partnership with the Wyoming Beef Council. Beef sticks are a popular item among Johnson County students!
Much like Johnson County Friends Feeding Friends, the Wyoming Hunger Initiative’s mission is simple: to end childhood hunger in Wyoming.
“We believe childhood hunger in Wyoming is a problem that can be solved. We work to prevent food insecurity by increasing awareness and support for the work of local anti-hunger organizations statewide and by advocating for a future where no child faces the school day on an empty stomach.” – Wyoming Hunger Initiative
“The Wyoming Beef Council (WBC) was established in 1971 to serve as the promotion, research and education arm of the Wyoming beef industry. The Council is comprised of five members, who are appointed by Wyoming’s governor. The members set priorities for the WBC, determine funding allowances and evaluate programs. They represent all segments of beef production within Wyoming including range cattle, dairy cattle and feedlots. WBC programs are funded by the $1-per-head beef checkoff collected on all Wyoming cattle when they are sold.” – Wyoming Beef Council
Thank you to the Wyoming Hunger Initiative and the Wyoming Beef Council!
