About the Redwood Empire Food Bank
Ending Hunger in Sonoma County
“How far down do we need people to go before we are willing to help them up?”
- David Goodman, Executive Director
Since 1987, the Redwood Empire Food Bank's service has grown to meet the rising need for food assistance and expanded to focus on providing as much healthy food as possible and including nutrition education as an integral part of many of our programs. We currently assist over 82,000 Sonoma County residents every month. We provide food through our own three Hunger Relief Initiatives that focus on the unmet needs of low-income children, seniors, and working families. We also are a primary source of food for 178 community based charitable organizations that operate over 276 human service programs helping the needy, disabled and homeless in Sonoma County.
