Food drives are an important donation source for the Food Bank of Yolo County (FBYC). Not only do food drives provide healthy, nutritious food, but they also raise awareness about the issue of hunger in our community.
Cash donations are also welcome. Did you know that for every $1 FBYC receives, we can provide $17 of food assistance?
Thank you in advance for your time and commitment. You CAN make a difference in our community!
How to Get Started:
- Establish a team and a main contact person.
What company, school, organization, etc. are you with? Who is the best person for the FBYC to contact?
- Set a date!
Establish a start and end date for your food drive. Consider your team’s goal and plan accordingly to achieve that goal.
- Tell us about your event!
Once you have your team in place and dates confirmed, please pick up or download our
Food & Fund Drive Kit, which includes a registration form.
- Location, location, location.
Where can participants drop off food donations? What are the drop off hours? We can loan collection crates to your team if you do not have your own boxes.
- Spread the word!
Promote your event by sending letters or emails, making phone calls, posting fliers, or messaging on social media.
- Coordinate a delivery once your food drive ends.
The FBYC warehouse accepts donations Monday through Friday from 8:30am-2:30pm. Please contact our Director of Warehouse Operations to schedule a delivery.
