Give Back This Fall -- Shelf-Stable Bag Packing Event

Join Yolo Food Bank in the fight against food-insecurity during the pandemic by helping us pack shelf-stable food for our distributions.

Box Packing Assistants will work at the Yolo Food Bank Facility in Woodland. You will work along a conveyor belt to pack cans and boxes of shelf-stable food into small meal kits for our food recipients. We will be packing up recovered grocery items, sending food to those who need it instead of allowing food waste in our county!
