Mission Statement

Solano County--do you have donations of produce or would you like to volunteer to pick up donations of produce for Martin Luther King Day of Service? ---The League of Women Voters of Solano County and volunteers will be picking up produce donations in Solano County beginning January 7, 2023 to January 16, 2023. Do you have produce (fruits and vegitables) in your yard to donate? ---We also need volunteers to pick up donations in Solano County (Vallejo, Fairfield, Suisun City, Rio Vista, Benicia and Dixon). ---We are also accepting cash donations to help pay for supplies. By recovering edible food, redistributing it to communities in need, and preventing it from sitting in landfills and emitting greenhouse gases, food banks and food distribution centers, play an important and innovative role in ensuring that edible food ends up where it's intended: in the hands of our neighbors.
