Yolo County households in need of food assistance for the holidays may receive one turkey, an assortment of fresh produce and a variety of nonperishable goods as part of the Thanksgiving Meal Distribution.
The Thanksgiving meal is one of two holiday food distributions hosted annually by Yolo Food Bank. With generous support from Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, the Food Bank distributed 1,275 holiday meals in November 2012. This year, it will give away 17 percent more, for a total of 1,500 meals for this Thanksgiving holiday.
The meal giveaway begins at 8 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 23, at 233 Harter Ave. in Woodland. The food will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until the meals are gone.
The Food Bank is partnering with several regional organizations, including RISE, Inc. (Esparto and Winters), Pole Line Baptist Church (Davis) and Children’s Alliance (West Sacramento). The Yolo Food Bank also will distribute food through its network of nonprofit partner agencies throughout the county.
