Ending hunger and malnutrition in Yolo County
For nearly 50 years, Yolo Food Bank 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, the Yolo Food Bank 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. By collaborating with non-profit programs, private and public sector agencies and service organizations throughout Yolo County, we provide this food to 52,000 people in 19,000 households each month, distributing more than 4 million pounds of food annually.
Hunger in Yolo County
Despite being known for an abundant agricultural economy, food insecurity is an everyday concern for many Yolo County residents, with as many as 17% of the overall county population affected. As many as 1 in 4 children do not have enough to eat, senior citizens and rural residents are disproportionately impacted, as are the working poor and their families, the recently unemployed, veterans, students and migrant farm workers. By providing for the nourishment of our most vulnerable neighbors, the Yolo Food Bank is a partner in raising the quality of life for all for live and do business in Yolo County.
