Shanna Harris of Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies will visit Cody on Sunday, Dec. 6 at 3 p.m. in Grizzly Hall at the Cody Library.
Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies is a subsidiary of Food Bank of the Rockies, a larger, region-wide food bank based in Denver with 112 employees in Denver alone. With over 800 member agencies, Food Bank of the Rockies distributes millions of pounds of food each year, including to the Cody Cupboard and many other food banks in Wyoming. It is the hub of a very vital charity–providing food for people in need.
Shanna Harris will explain how the food bank model helps to address hunger insecurity in Wyoming, and how their partnership in Park County works. This will be an eye-opening presentation especially for this time of year, when the work of food banks increases significantly.
Shanna will present for half an hour or so, then facilitate a conversation, through questions and answers. Refreshments will be provided by Christ Episcopal Church’s Young Adults in the Church youth program.
