JACKSON, Wyo. — Whether it is better to give than receive, Jackson Cupboard isn’t taking any chances—they’re doing plenty of both as a way for a community to stay fed, break bread, and help each other through this Big Sick.
Different community groups and organizations have been lending a hand at the Cupboard, helping to unload trucks and stock shelves. Late last week it was We the People’s turn.
Jackson Hole High School teacher and mentor of the academic civics group ‘We The People’ (Bronc Law) Jimbo Rooks had his team qualified for nationals this spring but the coronavirus pandemic has changed all that.
Undaunted, fellow coach Chris Tisi helped coordinate a food delivery at the Jackson Cupboard with volunteer Mike Randall last Thursday.
“While not the academic civics they thought they would be practicing this spring, it was civics in action,” said a proud Tisi as a volunteer crew from WTP helped stock shelves.
Randall was back at it Monday morning, unloading food in a dismal rain with the help of Tisi, Steve Duerr, and Paul Vogelheim.
Jackson Cupboard’s preferred drop off hours are Mondays and Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 12 noon.
