While Station 3990 is serving those directly affected by the fires, the REFB has food resources available to anyone in our community who is facing hunger. If you were not directly impacted by the fires but are in need of food assistance, please reach out to our Food Connections office at (707) 523-7903 between 9:00 am – 5:30 pm Monday through Friday, and we will connect you to a food distribution in your neighborhood.

Thank you Sonoma County and our extended Bay Area families for your incredibly generous support of the Redwood Empire Food Bank and all of our neighbors experiencing hunger. We are grateful to the swift, generous and effective response of so many in our community, but especially to Bay Area Food Banks, California Association of Food Banks, Department of Social Services, Department of Education, Feeding America, Corporate Food Donors, volunteers, and individual food donors. Together, we are ending hunger in our community.

HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP:
1. Make a financial donation.
We have the capacity to increase the amount of food we provide to the community – we just need the financial resources to make this possible. Please, give generously.
2. Bring non-perishable food donations to the REFB between 7:00 am and 3:00 pm Monday – Friday, or between 9:00 am and 12:00 pm on Saturdays to help us meet the increased need for food and nutrition assistance in our community. No glass, please.
