Yuba Sutter Residents to Benefit from Increased Resources at Local Food Banks

May 27, 2020 12:00AM ● By Feedingys.org

YUBA CITY, CA (MPG) - At a time when we’ve seen an increased amount of families across the state facing the anxiety that comes with food insecurity, California Health & Wellness is making a $20,000 contribution to the Yuba-Sutter Food Bank.

“We are so grateful for the California Health & Wellness generous donation which will help our organization feed local people in need and help with various aspect of our operation,” said Michelle Downing, Interim CEO, Yuba-Sutter Food Bank.

The contribution will supplement a number of strategies used to support disadvantaged individuals, families and those most at-risk to coronavirus. The Y-S Food Bank has shown resilience in the face of COVID-19, as the non-profit adjusts volunteer help and distribution models of meals during the pandemic. No matter what the case is, the Y-S Food Bank is working diligently to keep food available for those in need.

“In these difficult times, a staggering amount of individuals and families are dealing with the anxiety that comes with not knowing if there’s enough food to last the week or even the day in some cases,” said Yuba Supervisor Gary Bradford, who also serves on the Yuba-Sutter Foodbank Advisory Board. “This demand for food can deplete supplies for the food bank quickly, but the amount of support the Y-S Food Bank has received from the community shows that we are indeed all in this together.”

“The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are far-reaching and have extended beyond medical care, affecting people across the state, including families and seniors in need,” said Brian Ternan, President and CEO, Health Net of California and California Health and Wellness. “These issues have a significant impact on people’s overall wellbeing and can lead to serious health issues. Organizations like the Yuba-Sutter Food Bank will be in continuous need of resources during this critical time and Health Net is there to provide the support they need.”

The contribution from California Health & Wellness in addition to other contributions made by community organizations and individuals will make a huge difference in the lives of those most affected by this health crisis.

The Yuba Sutter Food Bank is a not-for-profit organization committed to its mission of alleviating hunger through food distribution, partnership, and education. The YSFB participates in federal and state government programs, which had yielded $680,000 worth of food last year and provided a million pounds of food to the Yuba-Sutter Community. The Food Bank also receives generous food donations from local sources and Feeding America. For more information, visit www.feedingys.org
