Food From The Bar

Welcome to our first-ever Food From The Bar campaign!

This spring, we’re inviting the local legal community to come together for one purpose: to end hunger in Sonoma, Lake, Mendocino, Humboldt, and Del Norte counties. 

Firms, legal companies, and bar associations will participate in a friendly competition to see who can raise the most funds and volunteer the most hours in support of the Redwood Empire Food Bank. Prizes (and bragging rights) will be awarded.

We hope you’ll join us in our efforts!
