A retired engineer, Wayne Eckert, makes weekly visits to Yolo Food Bank’s Nonprofit Nutrition Center in his role as Short Term Emergency Aid Committee’s (STEAC) Board president. He is devoted to improving the lives of low-income Davis families, and knows that he can depend upon Yolo Food Bank for fresh produce and other nutritious foods essential to the people STEAC serves. STEAC has been a Yolo Food Bank partner for the better part of 20 years.
“The food STEAC obtains from Yolo Food Bank enables our organization to provide needed nutrition to 640 individuals in Davis each month, nearly half of whom are children,” Wayne says. “With Yolo Food Bank’s support, we have been able to expand our outreach to home-bound, low-income seniors, and to provide school age children with weekend food to supplement their school meal programs. STEAC’s partnership with Yolo Food Bank enables us to more effectively address food insecurity in Davis.”
Please help us help Wayne to Nourish Davis and expand our service to more struggling Davis families, their children and senior citizens. Please NOURISH YOLO on the Big Day of Giving, by pre-scheduling your donation now at https://www.bigdayofgiving.org/yolofoodbank.
