Sonoma County Neighborhood Food Project – May 31, 2018

Sonoma County Neighborhood Food Project
Redwood Empire Food Bank

The Sonoma County Neighborhood Food Project is a revolutionary way to collect a steady, year round supply of food, allowing the Redwood Empire Food Bank (REFB) to feed over 82,000 Sonoma County children, seniors, individuals and families.

To help provide this sustainable source of healthy groceries for our neighbors experiencing hunger, community volunteers engage their friends and neighbors to become long-term REFB food donors. Every month, volunteer leads – our Neighborhood Coordinators – go door to door in their neighborhoods collecting food to deliver to the REFB.

Become a Neighborhood Coordinator. Get to know your neighbors and collect non-perishable food where you live and deliver donations to the Redwood Empire Food Bank. Sign up via the link below, or click through to your town’s page and learn more.

Help nourish our neighbors in three simple steps!
Step 1: As you grocery shop, buy one extra non-perishable item, something to share with a neighbor, like a box of cereal or a can of soup.
Step 2: Store the food at your home and keep adding to your supply.
Step 3: Every other month, on a prearranged day, a Redwood Empire Food Bank volunteer who lives in our neighborhood will come to your door and pick up your donation. The food will then be delivered directly to the Redwood Empire food Bank and distributed through our 12 hunger relief programs and our 170 partner organizations.
