2021 Food Drive for Yolo County Food Bank
We've begun our 12th annual food drive for the Yolo County Food Bank, and for obvious reasons, it's a little different this year. We're not requesting actual food donations this year, just cash or check donations.
More than ever we're depending on the YCFB to identify and purchase the food items they deem most needed for their recipients
We've learned in prior years of the purchasing power of a donated dollar.
- $1 = 3 meals
- $1 = $5.50 in wholesale purchase value
- $1 = 7 pounds of fresh produce
That means a $20 donation can be used to purchase 60 meals or $110 worth of food items or 140 pounds of produce.
Let's continue our annual efforts to come to the aid of our neighbors.
This year there is some added incentive. We've received good news from a DAM family who will match up to $5,000 in cash donations from other DAM members. Let's the rest of us get to work and equal that offer.
Make checks payable to: YCFB and drop off in the Drop Box inside the Brady Bldg at Civic pool.
