Family Network of Wyoming is a faith-based 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to nourishment for a stronger community by providing our food pantry, durable medical equipment, and other services. We are made up of one full-time director and two part time employees with a hands-on board of directors. Our volunteers are passionate and hard-working, which allows us to help those in our community who need it the most in an extraordinary capacity.

Our Goal

Our goal is to foster a caring, kind, and inclusive environment to ensure that those we serve leave feeling dignified and respected.

Our History

Family Network of Wyoming opened on April 1, 2004 as a client choice food pantry serving an average of 11 families per week. In our first year of operation, we served 130,000 pounds of food to 1,400 households. Since then, we have grown and expanded our services to offer non-food programs and services, such as durable medical equipment, the NOW program, the annual Wyoming Christmas Store and job skills classes.

Lead Pantry Program

Another area of growth for Family Network of Wyoming is the Lead Pantry Program. Our sponsors needed a professional grade organization to prevent waste and take care of their extra shares and food. We answered the call by collaborating with our program sponsors to create a process that would provide consistency and uphold the food quality and distribution standards that our sponsor organizations uphold.

Our Volunteers

Our volunteers are the heart that sustains the body of our entire organization. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to help in the immense scope that we do. We have 40 volunteers that work a total of 1,400 hours per month. Our volunteers provide us a lower operating cost to use our money where it matters most–helping our community.
