CASPER, Wyo. — Wyoming Food for Thought will host Localicious on Wednesday, Aug. 10, during which a five-course meal containing hyperlocal ingredients will be presented by Casper-area chefs.

There are still a few seats left at Localicious, according to a release sent by Wyoming Food for Thought. The event will take place at the newly revamped Food for Thought Kitchen & Community Space, also known as the Good Food Hub, at 420 W. 1st St. downtown. Doors open at 5 p.m.

One hundred guests will partake in a celebration of local food, and chef Maggie King will “lead the culinary journey with highlights of food and drink produced by Backwards Distilling Company, Skull Tree Brewing, True Bakery, ACS Juices, and Wyoming Food for Thought Project.”

“This event is an opportunity to highlight our important grassroots efforts to change the food system — and create a more equitable and accessible food system for everyone in our community,” said Wyoming Food for Thought’s executive director, Jamie Purcell, in the release.

Wyoming Food for Thought Project is a nonprofit dedicated to combating food insecurity in the state, putting an emphasis on local solutions. The project is best known for its program providing weekend food bags for kids who are in insecure food situations, helping to sustain them when they aren’t at school.
