YFB Volunteer Orientation - Virtual Event


Event Description:

Virtual Volunteer Orientation


For 50 years, Yolo Food Bank has elevated the common good for the people and communities of Yolo County by fighting food insecurity. Founded as a volunteer-run backyard gleaning program, Yolo Food Bank has grown to an organizational network of staff, volunteers, and more than 80 nonprofit partner organizations. We coordinate the storage and distribution of food from a network of growers, manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers and grocery stores, while simultaneously cultivating new sources of food. 


Yolo Food Bank depends on the more than 42,000 volunteer hours contributed annually by groups and individuals in the community.  In fact, we could not operate without this critical support. If you are an individual 12 years of age or older or if you are with a business, service club, youth group, or faith-based organization looking for ways to make a difference in your community, Yolo Food Bank has many volunteer opportunities. 


This 1 hour meeting will give all new and long-time returning volunteers an opportunity to learn about how Yolo Food Bank works, how we ensure food safety, and how we structure our events. We will also review our new volunteer guidelines and answer any of your questions. 


This event is mandatory for all volunteers and will be required before you are able to register for any other volunteer event.
