Yolo Food Bank hosting Thanksgiving Meal Kit distribution

Support Local Journalism


The Yolo Food Bank is preparing to help support 3,000 and more families in every Yolo County community with their “Sharing Yolo’s Bounty” this Thanksgiving.

As pandemic disruption continues, the year-round demand for food assistance in Yolo County suggests that a 50 percent increase in Holiday Meal Kit requests will occur this holiday season. The Yolo Food Bank is looking to Yolo County residents and businesses to help fund the initiative costs for the meal kits. They have an ongoing effort at yolofoodbank.org/sharing-the-bounty.

The meal kits will be distributed at 10 locations across Yolo County from Nov. 16-21. Each meal kit will include a turkey, an assortment of fresh, seasonal produce, and other classic Thanksgiving “fixings” to offer sustenance and comfort during the season of generosity and gratitude.

To be eligible for a meal kit, individuals must:

* Be a resident of Yolo County
* Where required, pre-register for a meal kit in area of residence. Otherwise, meal kits are available while supplies last
* When required, provide proof of address – this may include a driver license, state I.D. card, or a bill or other mail sent to a Yolo County address

The distribution date in Winters is Friday, Nov. 19 starting at 10 a.m. at the RISE, Inc. office at 200 Baker St.
