Spring Holiday Food Distribution 2014
Yolo Food Bank's Second Spring Holiday Food Distribution was a great success! This year, we were able to distribute 1,300 meals to residents in Yolo County, which was as 86% increase from the 700 meals distributed last year. Meals were loaded with non-perishable goods, an array of fresh produce, and a meat item.
To reach all areas of Yolo County, Yolo Food Bank worked with four partner agencies to distribute meals at nine sites throughout the county. Yolo Food Bank’s partner agencies for this distribution include Yolo County Children’s Alliance (serving Clarksburg and West Sacramento), Centers for Families (serving Davis, Yolo, and Knights Landing), RISE (serving Esparto and Winters), and Family Action Center of Colusa County (serving Dunnigan).
The success of our Spring Holiday Food Distribution would not have been possible without the generous support of the California Foundation for Stronger Communities, the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, and continued support from volunteers and local businesses such as Monsanto, Yolo Probation Department, and Food 4 Less.

The mission of Yolo Food Bank is to alleviate hunger and malnutrition in Yolo County. Thanks to the support from the community, partner agencies, and donors the Spring Holiday Food Distribution comforted 3,510 people with a holiday meal this season.
