YOU DID IT! The dream to Nourish Yolo by providing food security for every Yolo County resident now is a huge step closer to reality. Thanks to the community’s commitment of $9.5 million dollars over the past five years — 90% invested by private donors such as you — the NEW, 42,000 square foot Yolo Food Bank food distribution warehouse and operations facility is here, and we can’t wait to share it with YOU, your family and your neighbors!

Mark your calendar for Saturday, August 24, 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., for “Nourish Yolo: The Yolo Food Bank Grand Opening and Open House,” and celebrate and support food security with this Schedule of Events!
