    Fair to Fork 2024


    Think a hog can't change the world? Think again.

    Join us in going whole hog in the fight against food insecurity in Wyoming!

    Sources of high-quality protein are notoriously expensive and difficult to procure for local anti-hunger organizations. In partnership with University of Wyoming Extension 4-H and FFA, Fair to Fork works to purchase secondary hogs through a lottery selection, from every county in Wyoming. Wyoming Hunger Initiative will purchase the pig, ensure the meat is processed by a USDA or state-inspected participating facility, and then coordinate with the 4-H or FFA member to donate it to a local anti-hunger organization in the county of origin.

    4-H - Just be Yourself Online


    National 4-H is launching a campaign to hold a microphone up to that voice inside each of us that wants to be heard. We're daring teens to share the actually-human things they wish others knew about them. We believe that by sharing with courage and listening with kindness, we can put the social back into social media. Check it out and contribute at #What I Wish People Knew.
