Casper City Council to Vote On Joshua’s Storehouse, Food Bank Funding

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

Casper City Council is scheduled to vote on a pair of agreements that, in tandem, would pay out roughly $380,000 to a pair of local food security organizations.

Councilors are looking to authorize food delivery service agreements with Casper-based Joshua’s Storehouse and Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies on Tuesday.

Councilors will vote on disbursing $274,800 to Joshua’s Storehouse. Officials with Joshua’s Storehouse say the funding would be put toward a nearly $350,000 expansion of the pantry’s downtown warehouse facility.

Councilors will also vote on disbursing $105,000 to Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies that would be put toward the purchase a refrigerated food delivery truck. That deal will be contingent upon the organization finding matching donor funds by the end of the year to complete the purchase of the vehicle.

City officials say the money would come from excess one-cent sales tax funds from the 2013 fiscal year.

Councilors already gave informal approval toward funding both agencies at a recent work session.
