SWEETWATER COUNTY — United Way of Southwest Wyoming has awarded a $60,000 grant to the Food Bank of Sweetwater County.
The grant will help fund the operational expenses of the Emergency Food Program that provides food to the low-income community in Sweetwater County.
The Emergency Food Program aligns with United Way of Southwest Wyoming’s Basic Needs Initiative to provide quality services to support independent living for individuals and families.
Food Bank clients receive enough nutritious food to last 3-5 days twice monthly.
“We are fortunate to have the support of United Way of Southwest Wyoming to be able to continue the Emergency Food Program during this great time of need within our community,” said Kathy Siler, Executive Director.
