TOGETHER! We are fighting hunger in our county!

Load up your ride with canned food and create your own tour from Thursday, June 5 through Sunday, June 15th.

Bring your donations (food or funds) to each participating winery and receive a special thank you! (see list of participating wineries below)

The Need:

According to Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity, over 13,000 of our neighbors in this county have to miss meals because of lack of funds and are considered food insecure. TOGETHER! is an event designed to shrink that number, especially in the summer months. YCAP food bank provides food, organizational and technical support to a countywide network of Partner Food Agencies of emergency food box pantries, soup kitchens, group meal sites and a gleaner group.

There are 27 partner agencies total: 13 pantries, four soup kitchens, nine group meal sits and one gleaner group. We work hard to ensure that boxes/meals are healthy and have a variety of good food groups including fresh fruits and vegetables, protein, cereals and grains. In 2013 we distributed 1,250,538 pounds of food to the Yamhill county community.

Here are the participating wineries.

You are welcome to bring bags of canned food (canned meats, chili, canned vegetables, fruit, etc.) or you can bring extra cash to make an equivalent donation. Check YCAP’S Facebook page for updates on how the competition is shaping up.
