Representatives and volunteers with the Wyoming Food For Thought Project spent their Tuesday afternoon transforming an old downtown building into a new community food hub.

Volunteers cleaned up the old Hillcrest Water building located at 315 N. Walcott and are planting a new community garden at the site.

Jamie Purcell, the executive director of the Wyoming Food For Thought project, says the new facility will help Wyoming Food For Thought provide equitable food access.

“We were founded to help fill in gaps in the hunger safety net,” Purcell said. “What we really wanted to do is come in and, you know, use our expertise and our experience to make those efforts stronger.”

Purcell says the organization is accepting donations at the old Hillcrest Water facility. Potential donors are urged to contact (307) 267-2421 for more information.
