Redwood Empire Food Bank

Our mission is to end hunger in our community — but how we accomplish our goal is surprisingly complicated.

About Redwood Empire Food Bank

Last year we served 1 in 6 people in Sonoma, Humboldt, Del Norte, Mendocino, and Lake counties through our three Hunger Initiatives.

The Redwood Empire Food Bank (REFB) is the largest hunger-relief organization serving north coastal California from Sonoma County to the Oregon border. Since 1987, the REFB has been helping our community through 11 innovative programs under three strategic initiatives – Every Child, Every Day, Senior Security and the Neighborhood Hunger Network. We respond to the immediate needs of people seeking help through the provision of healthy food and nutrition education. We pursue long-term solutions to food insecurity through public policy and the development of partnerships with civic, faith-based, corporate and government organizations and, most importantly, individuals in our community.

Redwood Empire Food Bank reviews

Jamie Dixon-King

My 13 year old son and I started vounteering here for his school hours. He has fulfilled but we plan to continue volunteering weekly. Walt is such a wonderful guy that works there as a volunteer but helps run community volunteers.

Donna Weaver

Help packing the food is such a wonderful experience. They send food out to community that need the food. You just leave there feeling so good. Everyone should go down and help. They can use more people.

I've been a Veteran Volunteer with the Redwood Empire Food Bank and VVA Chapter #223 at 2 different locations each month and hope to volunteer more hours in the coming months! They have helped so many families here in the Sonoma County area and I want to continue to be a part of it!!!

I love volunteering here. The staff is always so friendly and enthusiastic. It is a meaningful way to contribute to the community.

Jon Holden

Great place with plenty of opportunities to serve and volunteer. They make it really easy to sign up and schedule your times. Unfortunately, they're closed on the weekends, but they have later weekday shifts.
