In August, 2010, the Redwood Empire Food Bank broke new ground by launching its own line of affordable meals-in-a-box, Simply Supper, made possible by a 2-year grant from the Merck Company Foundation. Simply Supper was created with the idea of bringing families together and promoting nutritious, tasty, home-cooked meals as an alternative to cheap fast food.
Why Simply Supper?
Simply Supper is a response to the growing need of food banks for a healthy, shelf stable, primary food source to feed the nation's hungry in the wake of a marked decline in the availability of donated foods.

Simply Supper History
Simply Supper was launched in 2008 as a partnership between the REFB and FDP USA, the largest producer and reseller of dehydrated and freeze dried vegetables world wide. With the labor of committed volunteers from FDP USA and the community, a line of healthy, delicious, low-cost, and easy to prepare meals was produced. The REFB believes Simply Supper represents the future of food banking, as we take control of our food supply and the nutrition we provide to people in need of food assistance.
