Libraries team up with food bank all summer

From page A3 | August 09, 2013 |

In line with the national summer reading theme of “Reading is Delicious,” Yolo County Library branches are accepting non-perishable food donations all summer for the Food Bank of Yolo County. The food drive is being dubbed “Feed your mind, feed your neighbor.”

Approximately 17.5 percent of people in Yolo County live with the threat of hunger, a county spokeswoman said. Summer is a time of great need for the food bank as food donations typically drop off and there is a 23 percent increase in demand.

Donated food is boxed by volunteers and given out to about 2,400 people each month through the Rural Food Delivery Program. Food is distributed at 11 locations throughout the county. Annually, the food bank distributes more than 3 million pounds of food, reaching 22,000 people per month.

Donations of non-perishable food will be welcomed. The items most needed include peanut butter, cereal, pasta, dried beans, fruit juice, and shelf-stable milk, as well as canned tuna, meats, fruits and vegetables.

Collection bins will be placed at each library branch, including two in Davis: the Stephens Branch Library at 315 E. 14th St. and the satellite branch at Montgomery Elementary School, 1441 Danbury St. in South Davis.
