June 5 photoTORRINGTON — According to the NoKidHungry.org website, one in six children in the United States lives with hunger, and Angela Wood wanted to do something about that glaring statistic.

A truck driver, Wood saw kids sleeping on the streets and going hungry while she traveled through cities, and that’s when she decided she wanted to make a difference. But she wasn’t sure how.

Wood came to a decision: She would combine her love of horses with raising awareness about the cause.

“What I’m doing is asking people to get involved in your communities. Get involved in what is going on in your communities to see if there is something you can do to help the children that are hungry,” Wood said during a recent stop in Torrington, Wyoming. “Children should not be hungry in America.”

She originally set out to raise awareness by making a cross-country trip with her two horses — Star-Buck and Renegade — and buggy, but then people started making donations. That’s when Wood decided to turn her trek into a fundraiser.  Click to continue reading.
