Other Ways to Give

96% of all Redwood Empire Food Bank resources support program activities.

Last year, the Redwood Empire Food Bank provided 577,700 meals to children through our Summer Lunch program sites, School Pantry sites, and Afterschool Café sites; provided groceries for over 1.7 million meals to seniors at risk of hunger through our Senior Security programs; and the equivalent of 16 million meals through our Neighborhood Hunger Network programs.

Improving the lives of our community would not be possible without your support. Here are some other ways to give and help those in need.

Honor a Loved One

Honor the memory of a friend or loved one, or celebrate a birthday, wedding, graduation, or holiday by making a contribution to the Redwood Empire Food Bank. It’s a unique and significant way to mark a special occasion, or celebrate the life of a special person, while making a lasting difference in the lives of our neighbors in need.

We will send a letter to the individual or family, gratefully acknowledging your gift in celebration of them. Donate here and select the “tribute gifts” option for your donation.

You may also mail a check or money order to: 
Redwood Empire Food Bank 
3990 Brickway Blvd.

Gifts of Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds

Take advantage of appreciated securities without incurring capital gains tax.

You transfer securities to the Redwood Empire Food Bank and we sell your securities, using the proceeds for important hunger-relief programs.

Please send an email to Lisa Cannon, at if you’re making a donation of stock, alerting her to the gift. Many stock transfers don’t include the donor’s name or contact information, so the gift shows as anonymous when it arrives.

I’m a prideful person

“I’m sorry you have to see me like this. I’m a prideful person, so this is really difficult for me. I live in my car with my 6 kids and they don’t deserve to be hungry because I’m scared of what people will think of me. But the reason why I called you over is because you and the rest of the staff make me feel so welcome. You always talk to us in such a happy tone and almost make me feel like this is something super normal. Because of the food bank, my kids are eating. And because of that, we owe you our lives. Thank you.”

—Parent of 6 whose family is living in their car (through tears) in Santa Rosa, CA
