Community service, community impact.
Food Bank of Wyoming is proud to partner with AmeriCorps, the voluntary civil society program supported by the U.S. federal government, foundations, corporations, and other donors that engages adults in public service work with a goal of “helping others and meeting critical needs in the community.” We offer service opportunities to put the power of individual passion to work helping our communities face the immense challenge of hunger.
Meet our AmeriCorps members
Every day we hear how our collective efforts have made a difference in the lives of our neighbors near and far. We invite you to hear their stories and listen to the difference we’re all making, together.
To me, serving with AmeriCorps is in my DNA, a part of who I am, and serving this term with Food Bank of Wyoming fills me with great pride and determination as I help to fulfill their mission.
I enjoy spending time outside and showing my daughter the wonder of the natural world. Once I complete my BS in environmental science, I plan on pursuing a Master’s degree in Geographical Information System & Technology at the University of Wyoming.
I was born and raised here in Casper, Wyoming. I love working with people of all diversity! I am really excited about becoming a service member for the Food Bank of Wyoming. It will be an honor to serve in the community that I know and love.
As an AmeriCorps member, this position will focus on working with select Hunger Relief Partners to implement capacity building to increase community access to nutritionally adequate foods. The Food Security Ambassador will also assess the Meals per Person In-Need (MPIN) reporting data to identify counties with the greatest need, use our Link2Feed client platform, and Bloomerang databases to identify area needs. Members also work in their perspective areas to engage community involvement through Food Bank of Wyoming special events and their own member projects to fight hunger and feed hope.

Meet our AmeriCorps alumni
I grew up in Wyoming, home to some of the most beautiful sunsets and most breathtaking landscapes I have ever seen. I have a passion for people and am pursuing my bachelor’s degree in Social Work, hoping to practice with inner-city youth. Serving people in all different capacities is what I am called to do and I have been surprised to see the impact hunger has, even in Wyoming. I am humbled to help #fighthunger and #feedhope in the state I call home.
One of my favorite programs at Food Bank of Wyoming is the Commodity Supplemental Food Program, designed for low-income adults over the age of 60. Once a month, my nine-year-old son and I load food boxes into our vehicle, and deliver them to people in our community. One delivery at a time sure makes a big difference for those in need, and the joy I get to experience with my son by my side, is priceless.
