Thanks to the support from Hunger Is, the REFB has increased the amount of nutritious breakfast appropriate foods we distribute through our Farm to Family School Pantry program. This grant helps ensure that low-income children receive a variety of high-quality breakfast foods, including fresh eggs and low-fat milk to grow healthy and strong.
(Grant period: January 1, 2017 – December 31, 2017)
Thanks to the support from the Walmart Foundation, the REFB will sustain eight Farm to Family School Pantries (FFSP) located at high-need schools in Sonoma County and expand our program to one new location in Lake County. Through weekly distributions, our FFSP provides up to 25 pounds of vitamin-rich fresh produce, perishable and non-perishable protein, and healthy staple foods so that at-risk children obtain proper nutrition for a healthy life.
