Meet Adel! 👋

Adel attends our Masjid Aisha distribution in West Sacramento every Tuesday. A West Sacramento resident and caretaker by profession, he learned about Yolo Food Bank's services from a friend a year ago and has been a regular attendee ever since. The support he receives ...from Yolo Food Bank has become a critical safety net for Adel, helping ensure he can stay well-nourished.

"It really helps out," Adel shares. “I get so much produce, I can’t eat it all. I take a lot of it to my neighbors and some to the homeless nearby, and it makes a huge difference for them too.” ❤️️

Adel, along with so many of our volunteers and neighbors accessing food, share the same spirit of giving. We have a generous community here in Yolo County that takes care of each other, and we are grateful to be a part of it.

We’re excited to welcome Andrea Aponte as the new Volunteer Coordinator at Yolo Food Bank! 🎉

Andrea’s passion for food insecurity began during her time at UC Davis. “While in college, many of my peers had trouble accessing food. Seeing that motivated me to want to work in this ...field and understand the root of it,” she recalls. This passion then led her to Yolo Food Bank as a College Corps Fellow, where she dedicated a year of her college experience in service of her community.

Her previous time at Yolo Food Bank is what led her to rejoin us. In her vital role now, she’ll spearhead the coordination of our 1,800 volunteers! “When I saw the job open up, I felt pulled back to the organization because of how much I enjoyed my time there as a College Corps Fellow,” she fondly remembers.

Her former experience with Yolo Food Bank, deep passion for food insecurity, and strong commitment to community engagement makes her an invaluable addition to our team!

Please join us in giving Andrea a warm welcome back to the Yolo Food Bank family! 💚

On this day dedicated to spreading love and kindness, we’re thrilled to share the heartwarming story of Bing, one of our dedicated volunteers. 🤗

Bing has been volunteering at Yolo Food Bank for over two years, generously giving her time at ...our Public Community Food Distribution every Tuesday at Masjid Aisha in West Sacramento. 🍎

Bing’s passion for food insecurity goes back thirteen years ago, when she was the one in need of assistance. During that challenging period, she faced unemployment, and government benefits alone were insufficient to meet her basic needs. In those trying times, Bing turned to Yolo Food Bank for support. 💚

Today things are different, Bing is now a hotel manager with Hilton. Motivated by her personal journey, she was inspired to give back where it mattered most to her. So, every Tuesday on her day off, you’ll find Bing devotedly serving her community by helping to distribute food to those who are experiencing circumstances similar to what she once went through.

We asked Bing what she would say to someone in need of food assistance and she offered great advice: “At one point or another everybody is in a position like this, and it’s okay to accept help.”

We are so grateful to Bing for her service, and we admire her commitment to spreading love and kindness to her community! 🙌
