What We Do

For nearly 50 years, Yolo Food Bank (YFB) has elevated the common good for the people and communities of Yolo County by fighting food insecurity. Founded as a volunteer-run backyard gleaning program, YFB has grown to an organizational network of staff, volunteers and nearly 70 partner agencies. We coordinate the storage and distribution of food from a network of growers, manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers and grocery stores, while simultaneously cultivating new sources of food.

…we asked our families to complete a survey about the past school year and the Kids Farmers Market was rated as the most valued event for fostering a sense of community at Winters Elementary. The surveys also indicated a strong desire for a better focus on healthy eating and living.

Farmers and ranchers involved in agriculture are among the most generous people in our society and Yolo County is no exception. Shared Harvest proposes that growers set aside the harvest from a portion of their farm or the proceeds from that portion for the Food Bank.
