Help Yolo Food Bank Pick Fresh And Healthy Produce For Our Hungry Neighbors!


(From Press Release) –Harvest time is almost here and Yolo Food Bank has wonderful volunteer gleaning opportunities available for families, business groups, friends, and more. Enjoy some light exercise, fresh air, and warm sunshine with like-minded people while helping Yolo Food Bank fulfill its mission to end hunger and malnutrition in Yolo County.

Yolo Food Bank is in need of volunteers to help harvest produce from local farms for our programs from July through September 2017. There are procurement volunteer opportunities available Monday mornings from 8am–10am in Woodland and Wednesday evenings from 3:30pm–5:30pm in Davis. You and your volunteer group (or just yourself) can sign up for one day or multiple days.

Please contact Ray Bautista at 530.668.0690 or to sign up. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age or older and be able to lift 15 pounds.

By procuring colorful, delicious, fresh, and healthy produce you will be helping people live better lives right here in your own community. Summer is a particularly difficult time for those facing food insecurity. And with children home from school it’s a particularly difficult time for families with limited incomes.

Unfortunately, hunger doesn’t take a summer break, much less a day off, so we have to come tougher to help bring healthy food straight from the farm to the dinner tables of our food insecure friends, family and neighbors.

Join the End Hunger Team and help make fresh, local produce available to our hungry Yolo County neighbors in need! Yolo Food Bank has over 5,000 individual volunteers who give their time every year; suffice to say Yolo Food Bank could not do what it does without the love and generosity of such a dedicated and amazing corps of volunteers.
