Every Child, Every Day
Under the Every Child, Every Day initiative, the REFB operates programs specifically designated to end childhood hunger. Healthy food is strategically distributed at schools, public parks, after school programs, and in low-income neighborhood community gathering places so that children have access to adequate nutrition year-round.
More than 16,000 seniors turn to the REFB for help in Sonoma County. With monthly food boxes, weekly produce pantries, and supplemental healthy groceries, the REFB provides our aging neighbors access to the nutritious food needed to lead healthy, independent lives.
Neighborhood Hunger Network
The REFB provides fresh produce and staple groceries to anyone in need of help. It is through our innovative direct service programs that we can ensure a county-wide emergency food system and strong nutritional safety net. We are also a major food source for 166 partner organizations, which include local food pantries, dining rooms, child care facilities and local shelters.
