April 22, 2020 - Woodland Businesses and Non-Profits Give Back!

Amidst this difficult time, we are proud of how swiftly our tight-knit Woodland business community has responded to today’s challenges through both food and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) donations and services.

Several local collaborations have cropped up to help fuel our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Last week local non-profit, Woodland’s Dinner On Main, launched the “Yolo Delivers HOPE” program, which will provide 4,800 healthy chef-prepared meals from 12 local restaurants to local, low income and vulnerable senior residents. This past weekend, the project launched with meals prepared by Downtown Woodland chefs from The Savory Cafe, Mojo’s Kitchen428, and Las Brasas Tacos & Salsas. Chefs from Morgan’s on Main, Father Paddy’s Public House, Cobram Estate and House of Shah Woodland are all planning for the next round of meal deliveries. This collaboration is sponsored in part by Clark Pacific and Meals on Wheels Yolo County. The demand for meals in our community surpasses their current funds. How can you help? If you have the means, consider donating to this program. More information can be found here: https://www.woodlandsdinneronmain.org/hope

The Yolo Food Bank continues to provide weekly home food deliveries to low income and vulnerable senior populations.  They are actively recruiting additional healthy volunteers to help distribute food to our community to meet the growing need. For more information on how to sign up for the program or to volunteer, visit their website: https://yolofoodbank.org/

As schools have closed for the year, Pacific Coast Producers collaborated with Woodland non-profit, Yolo Farm to Fork to support their efforts in education by donating 750 red tomato embossed cans for educational purposes. These cans will be part of educational kits distributed to Woodland and Sacramento schools to teach kids about gardening during shelter-in-place. Find out more about Yolo Farm to Fork here: https://www.yolofarmtofork.org/

Countless PPE donations have been made by our business community, including: Pacific Coast Producers, Bright People Foods, Haven a Boutique, RL Creative Designs, and more.  If you have extra PPE that you can donate to COVID-19 first responders, or if you are a first responder in #YoloCounty that needs PPE, contact First In, Relief for Evacuees – F.I.R.E. today to arrange a pick-up or drop-off: https://firstinrelief.com/covid19#7d2ac00e-2f26-4ae9-9232-efd8b5fac013
