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.

Thanks to the support from Morgan Stanley, the REFB will provide vitamin-rich, fresh fruits and vegetables and nutritious staple foods to vulnerable children through our School Pantry program in Sonoma County. This generous grant will allow us to sustain eight existing elementary school sites and open one new site at Roseland Elementary. Distributions occur weekly during the school year to help ensure that growing youth obtain proper nutrition, while supporting the health and well-being of the entire family.

Ernest L. and Ruth W. Finley Foundation
Thanks to the generous support from the Ernest L. and Ruth W. Finley Foundation, the REFB continues to administer four programs within our Every Child, Every Day initiative targeted at ending childhood hunger. Healthy food distributions are strategically located at schools, parks, afterschool programs, and underserved neighborhoods to fill the meal gaps that low-income children experience when school-based nutrition services are not available.
