Public Community Food Distributions


Our Public Community Food Distributions are a direct food distribution program offering healthy produce, dairy, meat, bread, and non-perishable grocery items to individuals and families at over 20 locations in Yolo County. Every month, Yolo Food Bank partners with civic and private organizations to serve upwards of 10,400 participants.

Program details
  • Food distributions are always free and most sites are open to the public unless specified.
  • No applications or proof of income, residence, immigration status, or other personal information required to access food assistance.
  • Food distributions are available in either a drive-through format (requiring participants to remain in their vehicles), or a walk-up format. For walk-up events, it is highly recommended that participants bring their own bags or cart.
  • To find a food distribution in your community, use the FIND FOOD tool.
  • Yolo Food Bank allows individuals to have another person (e.g., friend, family member, neighbor) to pick up food at a YFB food distribution event on their behalf when they cannot themselves attend. A completed ALTERNATE PICKUP FORM is required for food to be provided.
