Once again, the Yolo Food Bank will host its annual Pig Day Breakfast to thank the community for its generous support throughout the year. The thank-you breakfast runs from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Davis Farmers Market in Central Park, Fourth and C streets.

Thanks to the support of food donors like the Davis Food Co-op and Nugget Markets, the Food Bank is able to offer breakfast “on the house.” Volunteers from the UC Davis Dining Services and the community will prepare a meal of pancakes, bacon, eggs, potatoes, coffee and juice.

“We look forward to this event every year, because it is a wonderful way to say ‘thank you’ to our friends in Davis for all of the support they have provided to the Food Bank during the past year,” said Kevin Sanchez, executive director of the Yolo Food Bank.

“This event also affords us the opportunity to call attention to the ongoing issue of food insecurity in our county and how Yolo Food Bank is addressing this continuing concern.”

Last year, more than 900 people were served breakfast at Pig Day and organizers are hoping to serve 1,000 this year, Sanchez said. Donations will be accepted with gratitude in the Food Bank’s piggy banks.

The mission of Yolo Food Bank is to alleviate hunger and malnutrition in Yolo County; through programs and partnerships with 60 nonprofit partner agencies, approximately 25,000 residents are served each month.
