Meet Whitney, our wonderful Programs Manager! 🤗
Whitney began with Yolo Food Bank as an Office Assistant and transitioned to the Programs Coordinator role, coordinating our Student Farmers Market and Eat Home Yolo program. Now, as an invaluable member of our programs team, she ...skillfully manages these crucial programs as our Programs Manager.
Hailing from Sacramento, Whitney believes what sets Yolo County apart is its rich farm culture and the abundance of fresh produce. She understands the value of Yolo Food Bank's connections with local Yolo County farmers and the ability to offer our community the goodness of fresh, local, and organic produce.
But for Whitney, her role isn't just about distributing food – it's about nurturing minds. She loves educating youth about nutrition and the origins of food, and helping them to learn that healthy, local options are within arm's reach. Moreover, Whitney's dedication extends to senior citizens, individuals with disabilities, and vulnerable homebound residents who lack transportation, ensuring they receive the care they deserve.
Her passion for working with these vulnerable community members has found its perfect match here, as she weaves her interests into a seamless tapestry of impact – working with children & adults in need, contributing to non-profits, and ensuring resources reach those who need them most.
Whitney, your journey and dedication light up our team and the entire Yolo community. Here's to more years of making a difference and inspiring us all. Keep shining bright! 💫🌻
