Food Plaza

The REFB’s monthly Food Plaza offers seasonal produce, multi-grain breads, vitamin-rich dairy products, and wholesome ready-to-eat meals prepared in the REFB’s Kitchen Collective to anyone in need of food assistance. Art tables are available for children, and the REFB’s Value Market and Food Connections office both remain open so visitors can supplement food received through the distribution with quality, affordable products from the market, and sign­-up for CalFresh and REFB hunger-relief programs.

Program Impact

The Food Plaza fosters a welcoming and relaxed environment, makes affordable staple groceries more accessible by extending the hours of the REFB’s Value Market, and allows more of our neighbors in need to sign-up for CalFresh and REFB hunger-relief programs. By distributing hearty, flavorful heat-and-serve entrées prepared in the REFB’s Kitchen Collective, the Food Plaza also helps bolster nutritional intake and ease the stress of meal preparation for low-income individuals and families.

Community Reach

The Food Plaza currently distributes thousands of pounds of food each month to more than 400 households from communities throughout Sonoma County.
