Members & Values

Convened through the Associated Students of the University of Wyoming (ASUW) Student Government and Sustainability Coalition strategic partnership, the UW Food Security Taskforce is a coalition of students, staff, faculty, and administrators that plans and guides the University of Wyoming’s work to end student food insecurity. We envision a campus where our entire community is nourished to achieve academic, professional and personal success.


Mission Statement

The mission of the UW Food Security Taskforce is to end student food insecurity at UW through a range of interrelated strategies. While student food security is our primary mission, we additionally support strategies that ultimately aim to end staff food and financial insecurity and related challenges within our broader community. In this way, our mission is to ensure that every Poke is nourished.
