"Sharing Yolo's Bounty" Thanksgiving Meal Kit Distribution

Once again Yolo Food Bank is preparing to respond to human need at the holidays by “Sharing Yolo’s Bounty” with 3,000 families in every community in the county this Thanksgiving. As pandemic disruption continues, the year-round demand for food assistance in Yolo County suggests that a 50% increase in Holiday Meal Kit requests will persist this holiday season.

Thanks to the support of compassionate individuals and businesses countywide for the “Sharing Yolo’s Bounty” initiative
(ongoing at yolofoodbank.org/sharing-the-bounty), these 3,000 meal kits will be available at distribution locations in the days prior to Thanksgiving.  Each meal kit will include a turkey, an assortment of fresh seasonal produce and other classic Thanksgiving “fixings” to offer sustenance and comfort at this season of generosity and gratitude.   

To be eligible for a meal kit, individuals must:

  • Be a resident of Yolo County
  • Where required, pre-register for a meal kit in area of residence. Otherwise, meal kits are available while supplies last
  • Provide proof of address — this may include a driver license, state I.D. card, or a bill or mail sent to a Yolo County address

Participants may only receive one meal kit per household.
