When you arrive at Laramie Interfaith, we will request that you fill out an application. We work hard with our partners to reduce and remove barriers as well as limit the information we gather. But, please understand there are requirements we cannot control.
Link 2 Feed - Our Food Pantry Application does not require any documentation. You will be required to fill in your household information. This information is gathered by our partners at the Food Bank of Wyoming and helps us understand the needs in our community so that we can improve our services. This information is private and information you provide is only shared with the Food Bank of Wyoming.
HMIS - Our application for rental and utility assistance does require more information. You will need to bring documentation of any source of income and savings. In addition, we are required to keep copies of your lease, bills from the utility company, and any notice of disconnect or eviction (notice to quit).
To receive a motel voucher, you will need to meet with our Case Managers during walk-in hours. If you need emergency shelter outside of walk-in hours, please reach out to one of the following options:
- Laramie Salvation Army at (307) 399-8750
- Laramie Police Department at (307) 721-3547 or 420 E. Ivinson Ave.
To receive assistance with any of these, you will need to speak to one of our Case Managers. To make an appointment, you can stop by during walk-in hours or call (307) 742-4240. Due to high call volume, please leave a voicemail and our Case Managers will get back to you as soon as possible. Calls without voicemails will not be returned.

Link2Feed is a database built for food banks and pantries to help keep track of pantry visits. This data is used to help us improve our program and apply for funding to purchase food. Your information is protected by security protocols like those used by banks when stored in the Link2Feed database. You do not need to bring any documentation to access the pantry. All household accessing the pantry will be required to complete a Link2Feed intake form before receiving pantry items.
