Arbuckle Family Action Center
Yolo Food Bank partners with over 60 local non-profit agencies to provide food to Yolo County residents in need. Our partner agencies include food pantries, soup kitchens, group homes, transitional housing facilities, after-school programs, and family resource centers. Each quarter, the Food Bank highlights one partner agency to raise awareness about their services and the benefits they provide our community. This quarter, we are shining the spotlight on the Arbuckle Family Action Center (AFAC). AFAC is located in Arbuckle, CA but serves the Dunnigan area.
In 2002, First 5 Colusa opened the AFAC to local residents to provide a safe and comfortable setting to network, learn skills and access services to create a better life for families with young children.
AFAC currently partners with First 5 Yolo and Yolo Food Bank to provide a number of programs for children and their families. Programs offered through AFAC include a bi-monthly produce program, early learning playgroups for children, parenting classes, child passenger safety classes, health insurance education and application assistance, food voucher assistance, English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, GED, and computer training, as well as community referral services.
The partnership with Yolo Food Bank has made it possible for AFAC to reach families in Dunnigan. One hundred and seventeen Dunnigan families have received fresh produce through the Children’s Harvest program. They have also had the opportunity to provide holiday meals to families in need through the relationship with the Food Bank.
