On Tuesday, May 5th, Yolo Farm to Fork will join with more than 500 other local nonprofits on the BIG Day of Giving.
Online donations to Yolo Farm to Fork will be eligible for a boost from an incentive pool fund provided by sponsors. That means your donation dollars go a lot further on May 5th than they will on any other day of the year!
Your gift to Yolo Farm to Fork will help kids in Yolo County make lifelong healthy choices. Every donation to Yolo Farm to Fork will help us to:
- continue supporting edible gardens,
- continue supporting farm-based education,
- advocate for local, fresh food in schools,
- AND allow us to take on exciting new projects!
Our passions are preserving our agricultural heritage, cultivating a taste for fresh, healthful foods, and sharing the value of eating food straight out of the garden. We provide hands-on experiences in the garden related to classroom learning and want to cultivate a taste for healthful foods – because children love to eat what they grow!
With lessons that are experiential and interconnected, children learn the importance of keeping their bodies and minds healthy, what it takes to bring food to their table, and community-building skills and lessons of stewardship of the land.
