A big crowd of folks turned out in Casper to help feed school kids, donating food, cash, and their time to pack it all up for the coming Spring Break.

Last Saturday's Wyoming Food For Thought Project's Spring Food Drive, in partnership with Townsquare Media, brought in more than 3,000 pounds of food, and more than $3,000, according to Executive Director Jamie Purcell.

On Wednesday, more than 100 volunteers showed up to pack up 750 food bags with 28,000 items so kids who rely on school meals won't go hungry over the nine-day break.

Purcell said the Southridge Kindness Club also gave them dental care kits, donated by Hilltop Family Dental, for the bags.

  • First place for most food collected is Community Health Centers of Central Wyoming
  • First place for most money collected was Greater Wyoming Big Brothers Big Sisters- Casper (Progressive Youth)
