Hunger Initiatives - How We Reach Our Community In Need

In an effort to effectively reach people struggling with food insecurity in Sonoma County, the Redwood Empire Food Bank operates our 15 innovative programs under three strategic hunger relief initiatives -
Every Child-Every Day, Senior Security, and the Neighborhood Hunger Network.

Every Child, Every Day


Ensuring a healthy start in life by filling the meal gap for at-risk children. We have several programs that help children grow up healthy and strong by providing healthy meals or groceries to families with children.
Help Children

Senior Security


Providing seniors with the nutritional stability and resources to lead healthy, independent lives. Learn about how you can help our aging community take care of their basic needs.

Support Seniors

Neighborhood Hunger Network

Improving the health and well-being of our community with food and nutrition education. We are winning the fight against hunger by helping anyone in need of food.


Help Families
