The Food Stamp Challenge

Thank you for your interest in our virtual fund raiser. Use this blog page, and chect it frequently to stay current with what is going on with the event participants. We encourage you to actively comment on your experience as you go through this challenge. We think the experience will do three things: First, gives you first hand experience with what it is like trying to feed yourself for about $4 a day; Second, it allows you to be part of the solution in helping out the less fortunate; Third, you raise awareness about hunger and malnutrition in the community; and Fourth, you raise some money to help the Food Bank in its mission to alleviate hunger and malnutrition. Thank you for participating and for your generous and charitable involvement. To read or post comments, click here.

Welcome to the Food Bank of Yolo County’s Blog.

Our Mission: To alleviate hunger and malnutrition in Yolo County.

Founded and incorporated in 1971, the Food Bank of Yolo County in Northern California has grown from a backyard gleaning program providing a few thousand pounds of food a year, to an organization staffed by 10 full-time and part-time employees and hundreds of volunteers that distributes millions of pounds of food annually.

We look forward to hearing from you.
