Following a successful food drive in April, the City of Santa Rosa once again teamed up with the Redwood Empire Food Bank (REFB) to host a July food donation drive in response to growing hunger needs amid the COVID-19 emergency. Even if you missed the food drive, donations can still be made online here now.
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.
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.
It is going to take all of us, working together to get through this.
