Volunteer

Yolo Food Bank depends on the more than 24,000 volunteer hours contributed annually by groups and individuals in the community.  In fact, we could not operate without this critical support.  If you are an individual 13 years of age or older or if you are with a business, service club, youth group, or faith-based organization looking for ways to make a difference in your community, Yolo Food Bank has many volunteer opportunities.

Volunteer Spotlight

COVID-19 Emergency Food Home Delivery Volunteers

These community members offered gifts of time over the past four months to save lives in Yolo County. They made it possible for more than 6,000 of our most vulnerable low-income residents – those age 65+ and health-compromised – to isolate in their homes from virus spread  and maintain weekly access to fresh, healthy food. Each name represents a caring individual who risked his or her own well-being to ensure that other human beings would be nourished. They are heroes, and deserving of honor and gratitude.
