Since 1987, the Redwood Empire Food Bank has been feeding our neighbors in need and leading the community to end hunger.
We distribute food through our own programs and our partner organizations in Sonoma, Lake, Mendocino, Humboldt, and Del Norte counties. As the largest hunger-relief organization in our area, we work on the front lines of emergency food assistance in our region, playing a crucial role in helping individuals, families, seniors, and children.
We serve our communities through three initiatives. Every Child, Every Day includes four robust programs that address the nutritional needs of children, targeting both schools and seasonal meal gaps. Senior Security serves a monthly average of 4,800 low-income seniors healthy, fresh food across our five-county region. Neighborhood Hunger Network strives to improve the health and well-being of our community with food and nutrition education.
We could not accomplish this without strategic resources. Our donors, corporate sponsors, and foundations provide the financial fuel our organization requires. Over 10,000 dedicated volunteers work at our distribution sites and warehouse to serve or prepare food for our community. But none of this would be possible without our employees. Our employees are the heart and soul of our organization. Their dedication and effort make them that vital Hunger Relief Worker our community relies upon every day.
