Neighbors Helping Neighbors Donation Station and Virtual Food Drive
Following a successful food drive in April, the City of Santa Rosa is once again teaming up with the Redwood Empire Food Bank (REFB) to host another food donation drive—online and in-person—in response to growing hunger needs amid the COVID-19 emergency. The City seeks to raise an additional $20,000 (adding to the approximately $80,000 raised in April) for the Redwood Empire Food Bank during a Virtual Food Drive taking place through July 22. Donations can be made online here now.
Additionally, on July 22 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., donations of non-perishable food items will be collected at the Neighbors Helping Neighbors Donation Station, which will be set up at the parking lot at A Place to Play (2375 West Third Street).
Redwood Empire Food Bank is projecting the number of people in need of fresh food, groceries, and meals in Sonoma County to double amid the public health emergency to include 164,000 children, seniors, and adults.
It is going to take all of us, working together to get through this.

An online monetary donation is the easiest and most effective way to make a difference, especially during this time when social distancing is crucial. All forms of giving are appreciated, but money allows the food bank to put resources toward our most urgent needs in the moment. All donations, big or small, will help nourish our neighbors facing hunger.
Make your dollar go further - For every $1 donated, REFB will distribute $4 of healthy food.
