WFBR’s warehouse is the central distribution program providing food and essentials to more than 250 hunger-relief programs in Wyoming. These hunger relief programs range from small faith based food pantries to large charities serving hundreds of clients daily. Our Partner Agencies may choose from a variety of available food and household items.
Helping Agencies Stretch their Funding
Agencies do not purchase donated products. To help cover our transportation and warehouse expenses, agencies do contribute a very small Agency Support Fee (ASF) for some items. The IRS permits this system if the fee is not based on the value of the product and food recipients are not charged.
Fresh and Free
To encourage consumption over spoilage, fresh produce, dairy and bread are distributed free. Last year, WFBR gave away millions of pounds of food with no ASF. Products donated to WFBR through food drives are always distributed for free, without a fee. All food distributed through our partner agencies is always free to their clients.
WFBR’s Mobile Pantry Program provides aid to those Wyoming communities that are underserved by a traditional brick and mortar pantry. Each area served by the mobile pantry program is uniquely different by how the pantry is funded, how they secure their volunteers, and who is in need of help.
WFBR routinely looks at each county’s hunger statistics to recognize where there are underserved food insecure children, seniors, families, and individuals throughout the state. Then implements plans to bring in the Mobile Pantry Program, aid the existing pantry to better serve their community, or work with the local community to create and establish a brick and mortar pantry.
Mobile Pantry Program provides food insecure individuals with 10-15 shelf stable food items along with fresh produce, meat, and dairy. A typical mobile pantry serves on average 250 people, provides over 15,000 meals, and establishes a relationship in each community to give answers to their hunger needs.
