In the North Bay’s hours of need, a coalition of more than 650 people and organizations rallied to provide immediate, nourishing meals to those directly impacted by the devastating wildfires. Together we prepared 35,550 meals over 17 days, all of which were delivered to Salvation Army, Ceres Community Project, Sonoma Springs Hall/Grange, Worth our Weight, Bay Marin Church and Burdo Community Arts Centers.
And hundreds more contributed financially, raising nearly $55,000 to support Undocufund, Community Foundation of Sonoma, Tipping Point, The North Bay Just and Resilient Futures Fund and Redwood Empire Food Bank.
As our North Bay families, farmers and producers continue the slow rebuilding process, they still need our support. We encourage you to make the short trek to the North bay to visit your favorite winery and discover a new restaurant or shop. For when you're in the Bay Area, seek our the amazing products grown and produced in the North Bay within our neighborhood shops and restaurants. And to continue supporting the families and their rebuilding efforts, please consider donating to one of the organizations above.
We will forever be grateful for the heartwarming response from our chefs, restaurants and food purveyor community. Your contributions had an incredible, meaningful impact. Thank you.
