Host a Food Drive

Food drives are a great way for organizations, schools, businesses, and faith-based groups to raise awareness about the issue of hunger in Yolo County while supporting the community.  They provide healthy, nutritious food for Yolo Food Bank programs and offer a fun way to make a difference.  We encourage groups to host their own food drive.
