Hunger in America 2014
Yolo Food Bank is a member of Feeding America, a national network of food banks. As a member we had the opportunity to participate in Hunger in America 2014, a comprehensive study which will bring attention to this issue in Yolo County.
The Hunger in America 2014 study represents a continuation of research conducted over the past 19 years to provide a national profile of charitable food recipients and the agencies and programs that they access for assistance. The study provides the most comprehensive information on charitable food recipients and services at the local and national level. Previously, Hunger in America 2010, was the largest and most comprehensive study of domestic charitable food assistance ever conducted, stemming from over 61,000 client interviews and 37,000 agency survey responses.
Ultimately, our participation in and the results of the Hunger Study will allow Yolo Food Bank to better serve our partner agencies, improve existing programs, and develop new programs to address the needs of our community.
