Wyoming Food for Thought's New Tool

By  | 

Wyoming Food for Thought brought on a new tool to help them distribute food to Natrona County residents.

An old school bus with big plans to create a mobile food market.
The project continues with help from seven Americorps members.

The team of seven from around the nation came to Casper in May and will continue their work through the summer.

They aim to gut the bus and paint it.

They have already created new garden beds, torn out old ones, and completed lots of community outreach.

They hope to complete the new paint job for Casper's parade day in July.

"We've really enjoyed our time here so far, we really believe in the mission for food for thought, feeding the community and the community gardens is all really great, we really enjoy our time here,” said Emmaline McDaneld, from Americ-Corps media relations.

"They are a team of seven amazing women who just get to work, they are capable, they have common sense and you give them a task and they get it done,” said Jamie Purcell, the Wyoming Food for Thought Executive Director.

The goal is to paint the bus bright and beautiful, with lots of bright colors for the community to spot.
