Breakfast was a sincere thank-you

On Saturday, March 1, the Yolo Food Bank held its annual Pig Day Breakfast to thank the community for its generous support throughout the year. The breakfast was part of the city of Davis’ annual Pig Day celebration at the Davis Farmers Market. Despite the rain, 750 community members joined the Food Bank for a delicious breakfast that was on the house.

The annual Pig Day Breakfast could not have happened without the generous support of the Davis Food Co-op and Nugget Markets, which donated the food items served at this year’s breakfast. Additionally, the Food Bank would like to thank volunteers from the Davis Baha’i Community and the UC Davis Dining Services who helped with event activities and prepared a delicious breakfast of pancakes, bacon, eggs, potatoes, coffee and juice.

Once again, Yolo Food Bank’s collection of eight “Piggy Banks” were at the breakfast to greet guests. Although the breakfast is offered free of charge, through their generous donations, event participants chose “Chalkboard Charlie” as this year’s favorite piggy bank.

We were very pleased with the turnout, in spite of the weather, and are deeply appreciative of the support that this community has given the Food Bank over the years.

The mission of Yolo Food Bank is to alleviate hunger and malnutrition in Yolo County. Through our programs and partnerships with 60 nonprofit partner agencies, approximately 25,000 residents are served each month. In addition, Yolo Food Bank is committed to nutrition and increased access to fresh fruits and vegetables. In 2012, one-quarter of the food distributed by Yolo Food Bank was fresh produce.

Executive director, Yolo Food Bank
