Kids Farmers Market

“Curbside” Kids Farmers Markets Are Nourishing Yolo County Children and Families Through An Extraordinary Time of Crisis

While in-person instruction isn’t possible at this time in most Yolo County schools due to the COVID-19 disaster, Yolo Food Bank continues to provide critical access to nutrition to local children and their families. Free, fresh food distributions at school sites, in tandem with school districts’ meal pick-up locations, ensure that empty bellies don’t diminish students’ academic success as they pursue distance learning programs.

On a weekly basis, Yolo Food Bank provides a robust box of groceries, including 18 lbs of produce and 18 lbs of dairy and pre-cooked meats and other items. In total, Yolo County schoolchildren and their families have access to 50,000 pounds of food each week at these distributions, with nearly 1,300 households nourished.

As of October 2020, Yolo Food Bank has a weekly presence at the following school sites:
