Eat Home Yolo
Providing equitable access to free, fresh food for our senior, low income, mobility-restricted, and homebound neighbors throughout Yolo County.
Conceived at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic as an emergency response for immunocompromised, elderly, or mobility-restricted neighbors “Eat Home Yolo,” is now an integral part of Yolo Food Bank’s operations making about 2,400 doorstep deliveries throughout Yolo County each month.
Our goal is to meet the needs of each individual’s unique circumstances through two distinct distribution models:
- Offering food deliveries – fresh produce and shelf stable pantry items – twice a month, to individual’s homes (limited capacity).
- Open to senior citizens, individuals with disabilities, and vulnerable homebound residents who lack transportation.
- Interested individuals should contact our main office at (530) 668-0690 to apply. Qualified applicants will receive their first delivery within two weeks of approval.
Dozens of dedicated Yolo Food Bank volunteers and three of our partner organizations — Kare4All, Farm Fresh To You, and West Sacramento Mercy Coalition — make this effort possible delivering weekly nutritious food directly to residents’ doors.
Community Market-Style Distributions:
- Private food distributions at 20+ senior center, RV parks, and affordable housing complexes throughout Yolo County. These food distributions are available to the residents of these communities.
- Please contact your property manager to find out if there is a distribution at your location.
