About the W5 Project
The Redwood Empire Food Bank is the largest hunger-relief organization serving north coastal California.
It is our goal to serve you, our participant, the best possible way we can. To do so, we must understand who you are. Thus, we have created the W5 project—which stands for “who, what, when, where, and why”.
By creating a profile, the Redwood Empire Food Bank is able to understand how far you’re traveling, how often you need food assistance, and what we can do to improve your provision of help. All you have to do is fill out the short form below and we will reach out to you to complete your registration. Your information will not be shared with anyone outside the Redwood Empire Food Bank. The privacy of our participants is of utmost importance.
Before you give us your info, allow us to share our “who, what, when, where, and why” for this project.
We want to better serve you.
By filling out the form below, you’ll be registered to attend all our distributions. This will allow us to identify programs and donated items that work best for you.
The Redwood Empire Food Bank is a member of the National Diaper Bank Network. Having participant information will allow us to identify sites where diapers are needed.
We want every client who accesses the Redwood Empire Food Bank to create a profile. You can do so by filling out the form below or calling (707) 523-7903.
The information we’re requesting is very basic. We just want to know your name, demographic information, familial relations, and household size.
We would like to understand how far you’re traveling to get to our food distribution sites, and if we need to consider adding locations to meet your needs.
We are interested in knowing when you’re in need of food assistance, and how often you’ll be attending our food distribution sites.
The Redwood Empire Food Bank has officially become a member of the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN) and is the designated Diaper Bank for Sonoma, Lake, Mendocino, Humboldt, and Del Norte counties. Families are offered 50 diapers per month for children ages 0-4 years old.
