$5,000 for West Sacramento food distribution

Founded as a volunteer-run backyard gleaning program, Yolo Food Bank has grown to an organizational network of staff, volunteers and more than 80 nonprofit partner organizations. Demand for food assistance grew 60% during COVID and the the Food Bank needed more food, more distribution locations, and more supplies to keep staff, volunteers and customers safe. The West Sacramento Foundation responded with an emergency grant of $5,000 to help tackle food insecurity in West Sac.
