Yolo Food Bank distributes nearly 4 million pounds of food and grocery items annually to children, seniors, families, and individuals in need of food assistance. Our goal is to provide healthy food for Yolo County residents in need. Yolo Food Bank distributes food directly through programs and through our network of 60 non-profit partner agencies.
Through our unique direct distribution programs, the Food Bank is able to improve access to and provide nutritious food to hungry people. There are more than 35,000 individuals in Yolo County who experience food insecurity, and Yolo Food Bank is here to help. Our innovative programs help feed people every day.
Fresh produce represents more than one quarter of our annual inventory. Because we live in an area rich in agriculture, Yolo Food Bank partners with local farmers to source, obtain, and distribute locally-grown fruits and vegetables. In addition, we work closely with growers and packers located throughout the region and state of California to ensure a consistent variety of fresh produce. Through our programs, Yolo Food Bank has prioritized the distribution of fresh fruits and vegetables to children, seniors, and families.
