Our Private Community Food Distributions provide 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 20+ 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 two of our partner organizations — 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 20+ senior and affordable housing communities throughout Yolo County.
  • Please contact your property manager to find out if there is a distribution at your location.
