Yolo Food Bank’s Yolo Grown program increases access to Yolo County-grown fresh produce among food insecure Yolo County residents through a network of partnerships with local farmers and other food system partners. There are currently more than 30 Yolo Grown partners working with Yolo Food Bank to provide a sustainable source of fresh produce year-round. As a result, food bank clients receive higher quality, more diverse and culturally relevant produce throughout the year.
Want to Volunteer?
Volunteer to harvest at a local farm
This is by far our biggest need. We work with local farms to glean and harvest produce, typically from June - October, during the peak growing season. Keep an eye out on our volunteer calendar and social media for opportunities, or contact the Yolo Grown Coordinator for more information on upcoming events.
Volunteer to sort and pack produce in our warehouse
We have two produce distribution programs that bring produce directly to our clients around the county. We usually pack for over 1,300 families per week, and need volunteers to help pack and sort the produce we send to these distributions.
