Meet Our Board

Isaac Sutphin


Tammy Bauman

Co-Vice President

“I firmly believe that everyone has the ability to give, as we all possess the capacity to love, and love is something we can give freely.”

I am deeply committed to addressing the needs within our community and I am especially committed to addressing food insecurity. The Friday Food Bag Foundation spoke to my heart as I believe that no child should ever go hungry. My community-minded approach inspires me to give back, fostering a supportive and nurturing environment for everyone. Having been married for 40 years, I’ve raised my family in this
community, cultivating strong local connections and a deep sense of belonging.

Amanda Santee

Co-Vice President

“My passion for serving with the Friday Food Bag Foundation stems from the belief that no child should ever have to worry about their next meal. It’s an honor to be part of a mission that provides children with the nourishment they need over the weekend, helping to bridge the gap when school meals aren’t available.”

Amanda joined the Board in 2021 after volunteering by filling food bags and witnessing the powerful impact they have on children’s lives. She is dedicated to making a tangible difference for children facing food insecurity. She brings to the Board an unwavering passion for advocating for children and a background in volunteer work and strategic planning.
Amanda values a hands-on approach in planning events, fundraising, packing food bags, and raising awareness about childhood hunger. She loves serving alongside a board of like-minded, dedicated individuals. Amanda is committed to fostering strong relationships with volunteers, donors, and community partners to ensure the Foundation continues to grow and serve more children each year.
As a devoted mother of two and loving wife, Amanda enjoys spending time outdoors and embarking on family adventures worldwide. Professionally, she is proud to be part of the team at the Wyoming Department of Administration and Information. Her personal and professional endeavors are driven by a belief in the power of collective action to create positive change.

Wendy Ross


Wendy Ross is originally from California and moved to Wyoming in 2007 to attend law school at the University of Wyoming. After graduating from law school in 2010, Wendy moved to Cheyenne where she has remained. Wendy began her legal career with a general practice firm and represented clients in family law, criminal defense, and bankruptcy matters. She joined the Wyoming Attorney General’s Office in 2014 and began working exclusively in child welfare law. Through her work in child welfare law, Wendy saw food insecurity for local children continuing to grow. She started volunteering at Friday Food Bag Foundation in 2022 to help serve food insecure children in Laramie County. Wendy joined the foundation’s board of directors in January 2023.

Erin Berry


Erin shares, “I’m so grateful to be a part of this organization. Together with the community, we truly make a difference, and it’s an honor to be one small piece of the Friday Food Bag Foundation.”

Erin Berry is the Treasurer for the Friday Food Bag Foundation and has been a Board member since 2021. Erin is an attorney with the law firm of Hirst Applegate and the mother of two amazing children. Erin became a lawyer to advocate for people, and her role on the Friday Food Bag Foundation Board of Directors allows her to pursue that passion outside of the legal realm. When Erin learned of the Friday Food Bag Foundation, the mission spoke to her and moved her. At Erin’s first bag fill, she became emotional at the thought of children not being fed over the weekends and overwhelmed by the sense of community support for those children. After learning about the organization, Erin instantly knew she wanted to have an active role in promoting the mission and working towards feeding children who might not otherwise eat over the weekends.

Jon Weaver

Board Member

Since 2023, I have been a board member and had the privilege of contributing to our organization’s growth and success. I initially provided warehouse space, which later expanded into a broader role involving fulfillment. It was during this time that I realized the value of direct involvement and eventually became a board member. In addition to my board responsibilities, I also serve as the General Manager for Arrow (Sponsor of the Foundation) and have the unique opportunity to drive the University of Wyoming football team truck. Outside of work, I cherish the time spent traveling and creating memories with my wife.

Althea Farthing

Board Member

As a long-time educator in Wyoming, I was fortunate to have several of my elementary classroom students become the first recipients for distribution of Friday Food Bags here in Cheyenne. I have seen first hand the very real need for nutritious foods for students in our district; especially over the weekends. I’m privileged and honored to serve on the Friday Food Bag Foundation board in the interests of our youth and look forward to the growth of our organization through strong, consistent community support.
