Who Gets the Food?

All of the non-perishable food that is collected by the STEAC Food Project goes to our Food Closet at 642 Hawthorne in Davis. We provide five to seven day's worth of food to an average of 120 local families each month. In 2014 this amounted to nearly 3700 people served.

Our citizens in Davis are not immune to a insufficent healthy food, 1 in 6 people in Yolo County are ‘food insecure’, i.e. they do not know if they have adequate food for their next meal. Many of these are children. The lack of adequate nutrition inhibits student’s ability to concentrate, study, and achieve their potential. Providing nutritional meals is a critical step toward breaking the cycle of poverty. Each of us can help. Just a few cans of non-perishable food provides a two to three meals.
