Thank You Tanimura & Antle

As the growing season for 2016 comes to a close, YCFB would like to extend a HUGE Thank You to Tanimura & Antle for a record year in onion donations!! Historically undesirable onions would be disked back into the soil, but for the last two years, those undesirables have been donated to the food bank. Thank you Tanimura & Antle for the 312,508 lbs. of onions, which have gone as far as Las Vegas to feed hungry families in the community!

Keller Williams Red Day

In honor of Keller Williams National Red Day, our local Keller Williams organization is volunteering at the food bank. We are honored and grateful for this assistance. With the end of the school year insight and agriculture moving away from Yuma, the food insecurity needs seem to the the greatest at this time. Keller Williams volunteers are helping YCFB prepare for this anticipated need by preparing TEFAP bags and bagging bulk produce that will be issued to the food insecure families of Yuma County.
