Target Davis volunteers with Food Bank of Yolo County
Team members from Target Davis joined United Way certified partner Food Bank of Yolo County at Westfield Village Elementary school in West Sacramento to help with the Summer Kids Farmers Market program. The program is a mock farmers market where the kids get “funny money” to shop in the market and stop by the nutrition resource table.
The purpose of the market is to teach kids the importance of making smart healthy choices and staying active. Volunteers distributed produce and shared nutrition information. Westfield Village Elementary is also home to one of the United Way STAR Readers program sites.
Not only does the program provide fresh fruits and vegetables to kids and their families, but also educates students on how to be a responsible and productive citizens of the community through money management training and opportunities to practice these skills at an early age. In addition, both students and volunteers learn more about produce and our local community together in a fun way. Food Bank of Yolo County provides 2-3 million pounds of food annually to dozens of nonprofit agencies and hundreds of low-income households. Thank you to Target Davis volunteers for giving back to the community and to Food Bank of Yolo County for hosting these fabulous volunteers.
