Wyoming Kids First received $25,000 from the Walmart Foundation to support and expand the Book and a Bite program model in Wyoming. Through a competitive grant process, Wyoming Kids First selected ten communities that will receive mini grants to support this program model. In total, Wyoming Kids First received over $64,000 in funding requests for the $25,000 of funding available to support this community-inspired family-strengthening program.

We look forward to partnering with the following ten communities as they implement or sustain programs:

  • Buffalo
  • Casper
  • Cheyenne
  • Cody
  • Evanston
  • Laramie
  • Lyman
  • Platte County
  • Sheridan County School District #1
  • Teton County

These communities will use grant funds to host events designed to strengthen families through a structured evening during which families share a hot meal together, enjoy a book read-aloud, and receive a children’s book and take-home food bags for the entire family. We are grateful to the Walmart Foundation for granting us with funds to support communities in this impactful work.
