Yolo Delivers Hope, a program that provides meals for homebound seniors, low-income families and migrant farm workers, was started in response to the COVID-19 pandemic by Woodland’s Dinner on Main organizers. It received $20,000 through the Yolo COVID-19 Relief Fund and contracts with Woodland restaurants to create the meals.
