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.
