Jackson, Wyoming — Did you see it? A new Eat Wyoming trailer was released Wednesday in Jackson!
Central Wyoming College (CWC) partners with the statewide Eat Wyoming Local Food Hub to give farmers and ranchers access to local food markets, providing Wyoming-grown foods to their communities .
CWC purchased a combination refrigerated and frozen trailer and truck to transport locally grown food.
“Eat Wyoming’s Local Food Hub supports online retail ordering from our website, as well as wholesale ordering from restaurants and grocery stores,” said Melissa Hemken, CWC Community Food Systems Specialist.
“The Eat Wyoming team coordinates the collection and transportation of ordered local food products. Regional routes operate daily throughout the state to pick up and deliver local food products. Retail customers ordering online can choose to have their order picked up at a designated pickup location or have it delivered to their home.”
CWC and Eat Wyoming have partnered with Slow Food in Tetons, Jackson. A local food hub with trucks and refrigerated trailers or refrigerated vehicles, he delivers local foods grown throughout the Cowboy State to Slow Food’s farm stands. It will also allow more Wyoming farmers and ranchers to list their food on the Teton Slow Food online marketplace.
Eat Wyoming’s Local Food Hub adds Wyoming produce to Jackson’s restaurant menus and grocery shelves.
“We deliver to bodegas and delis, square restaurants, chain grocery stores and village restaurants,” says Hemken. “Buying locally grown produce provides the freshest food available, increases the resilience of Wyoming’s economy and food system, and supports farmers, ranchers and communities. For the people of Wyoming. People from Wyoming.”
