Eat Home Yolo provides 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 in 2020 as an emergency response, this program now serves nearly 500 households through home deliveries and 800 households at 22 community housing distributions each month.

Our goal is to meet the needs of each individual’s unique circumstances through two distinct distribution models:

Home Deliveries:

  • Offering food deliveries – fresh produce and shelf stable pantry items – every other week, to individual’s homes (limited capacity).
  • Dozens of dedicated Yolo Food Bank volunteers and three of our partner organizations — Farm Fresh To You, Mercy Coalition of West Sacramento, and Food 4U Foundation — make this effort possible delivering nutritious food every other week directly to residents’ doors.

Community Distributions:

  • Private food distributions at 22 senior and affordable housing communities throughout Yolo County.
  • Please contact your property manager to find out if there is a distribution at your location.
