Redwood Empire Food Bank

The mission of the Redwood Empire Food Bank (REFB) is to build partnerships to end hunger. Founded in 1987, REFB is Sonoma County’s largest hunger-relief organization. We acquire food and distribute it through a network of charitable agencies and our own food assistance programs, and also provide food to Lake, Mendocino, Humboldt, and Del Norte Counties through five smaller food banks. In addition, the REFB advocates for effective legislation that will provide long-term solutions to hunger in our community. During fiscal year 2004-2005, 8.1 million pounds of food was distributed. http://www.refb.org/
