Today, Yolo Food Bank is recognizing Kathy Brunetti as one of the VIP Volunteers of this quarter! ⭐️

Kathy has gone above and beyond in service of her community. A volunteer of our Public Community Food Distribution in the City of West Sacramento parking lot, Kathy has garnered fame in... the community, affectionately known as the "West Sac Bag Lady," for her tireless effort collecting used grocery bags to distribute to recipients, ensuring they have adequate supplies to transport their food. 🛍

Kathy joined Yolo Food Bank four years ago. "I saw a call for volunteers for the West Sacramento City Hall food distribution. I signed up to see what it was like. One Saturday was all it took—and I was hooked." 🤗

Kathy's favorite connection to the organization is its sense of community. "The organization itself is a community. Many of the other City Hall volunteers are regulars. We know each other. We help each other. We work well together. 'What a well-oiled machine!' a newbie told me. And—oh so important—we are valued as volunteers." 🍅

We are so grateful to all of our volunteers who completed service benchmarks this quarter as a part of our Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP)! Read more about the program here 👉 yolofb.org/vip 💚

Yesterday, we had the pleasure of hosting the California Association of Food Banks (CAFB) staff at our facility! CAFB staff and Yolo Food Bank staff enjoyed a delightful taco lunch together, providing a wonderful opportunity for staff to connect, share stories, and gain insights into each other’s... roles and initiatives. 🍐

After lunch, the CAFB team enjoyed a comprehensive tour, learning how Yolo Food Bank meets our community’s food needs. Their visit was made even more impactful as the CAFB staff rolled up their sleeves and volunteered with us. Packing items for our Community Food Distributions and stocking our Sutter Health Partner Agency Store. 🤗

We are immensely grateful for our partnership with CAFB. Their support equips us with essential food resources and strong advocacy on both state and national levels. The hunger crisis is real, but together, we are tackling it head-on! Thank you, CAFB, for your partnership in our shared mission to end food insecurity. 💚
