First Lady launches support for food security at Friday Food Bags

in Community/News

Both Jennie Gordon, First Lady of Wyoming and Governor Mark Gordon worked alongside Cheyenne volunteers Monday evening to fill 925 food bags for area children who may not have access to nutritious meals when school is out for spring break.

Wyoming’s First Lady decided to spotlight food security after a visit with a friend in Sheridan opened her eyes to the number of children in Wyoming communities who go hungry or don’t know when their next meal will come.

“…if you have food in your stomach, you can learn, you can do better in school. Just a lot of things in your life improve,” said Gordon.

Gordon added growing up in a big family, with lots of mouths to feed, made clear how a good meal is foundational for kids.

The event was put on by Element ChurchOneReach, and Friday Food Bag Foundation.

Element Church Associate Pastor Steve Doolin said the church partnered with area non-profits to tackle the issue head on.

“Well, I believe it’s an epidemic,” said Doolin. “It’s not just in Cheyenne, it’s all over the country but lack of food is very prevalent in Cheyenne, Wyoming and Friday Food Bag, One Reach, Element Church are making a huge difference in trying to combat that.”

A look inside Cheyenne Hills Church new youth facility

By Cowboy State Daily

Cheyenne Hills Church recently completed work on “The Barn” so middle and high school parishoners have “a place to call their own”. Sandy Johnson, senior staff assistant at the church, took Cowboy State Daily on a tour of the new facility. 

Like barn raisings of the past, over 100 volunteers and 20 donors plus several local business leaders came together to bring the space to life.
