CHEYENNE — In 2021, hunters donated 215 harvested animals amounting to 9,841 pounds of game meat for the Food from the Field program. That makes a difference for fighting hunger in Wyoming.
The Food from the Field is an innovative program led by Wyoming’s First Lady Jennie Gordon to help the most vulnerable residents in Wyoming.
Food from the Field is a partnership between Wyoming Hunger Initiative, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, Wyoming Department of Agriculture, and participating processors to streamline game meat donations to food pantries statewide.
Donations continue building a sustainable future fighting hunger in Wyoming. All deer and elk undergo appropriate CWD testing to ensure safety prior to entering the food bank system.
