The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Yolo Food Bank harvests, packs and distributes fresh fruits and vegtables throughout Yolo County. Most of the produce that Yolo Food Bank recieves is donated by local farmers.
Volunteers are needed to harvest fresh produce at beautiful farms across Yolo County throughout the summer. Groups will be trained on proper harvest techniques from knowledgeable food bank staff, while enjoying summer mornings picking fresh produce.
