Thank You Sprague's Sports!!

Thank you Richard Sprague and Sprague's Sports for another successful Aim to Help Hunger Event. YCFB received 1,113 lbs. of Frozen Meat, 1,436 lbs. of Dry Groceries and $1,026, greatly in part to a generous donation from Adair Range, Inc.! This much needed support will not only benefit the Yuma Community Food Bank, but also Crossroads Mission and Salvation Army, as we support those most vulnerable in Yuma.

However, the BIGGEST Thanks goes out to the Yuma community, who are the front line as we "Fight the War on Hunger!"

Got Milk?

Thank You Yuma, for making our Family Day a HUGE Success!

On June 18, 2016 YCFB hosted the 1st Family Volunteer Day. An opportunity for families with small children to volunteer at the food bank. The generous Yuma community made this event a wonderful success. With 43 individuals helping during one of the warmest times of the year! YCFB shared and embraced the old adage: “Many hands make light work”, and truly experienced that today. From bagging onions to filling and distributing carts, this crew did an amazing job! Thank you for all you do for the Yuma community!
