Meet Adel! 👋

Adel attends our Masjid Aisha distribution in West Sacramento every Tuesday. A West Sacramento resident and caretaker by profession, he learned about Yolo Food Bank's services from a friend a year ago and has been a regular attendee ever since. The support he receives from Yolo Food Bank has become a critical safety net for Adel, helping ensure he can stay well-nourished.

"It really helps out," Adel shares. “I get so much produce, I can’t eat it all. I take a lot of it to my neighbors and some to the homeless nearby, and it makes a huge difference for them too.” ❤️️

Adel, along with so many of our volunteers and neighbors accessing food, share the same spirit of giving. We have a generous community here in Yolo County that takes care of each other, and we are grateful to be a part of it.
