Donations welcomed to Feds Feed Families campaign

Across Yolo County, there continues to be a need to feed the hungry, particularly in the summer, when there are shortages in food banks and an increased need among children who are out of school and not benefiting from school lunch programs.

To help address this need, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has launched the 2012 Feds Feed Families Food Drive. This summer, the local USDA Service Center in Woodland is leading this drive.

According to the Food Bank of Yolo County, nearly 30,000 Yolo County residents, including children, low-income families, senior citizens on fixed incomes, people living with HIV or AIDS, the homeless and people struggling to move from welfare to work live with the threat of hunger.

More than 10,000 students in Yolo County schools are eligible for free or reduced-price school breakfast programs.

This is where the Feds Feed Families drive, which runs through Aug. 31, can help. Nonperishable food items may be dropped off at the USDA Service Center, 221 W. Court St., Suite 1, in Woodland.

“It’s so easy to pick up an extra canister of oatmeal or a few cans of beans the next time you’re at the grocery store,” said Phil Hogan, district conservationist. “Please give back to the Yolo County community and help make a difference in the lives of those in need.”

All donations will be given to the Food Bank of Yolo County.

For more information or to make a donation, call Hogan at (530) 662-2037, ext. 111.
