The Story

Dear friends,

As we're all aware, wildfires have the people of Sonoma, Napa, and Mendocino counties fighting for their lives, their homes, and their land. Thousands of people have been evacuated, thousands of homes have been lost, and the fires still rage on. This tragic destruction is impacting our friends, families, employees, and our greater community, and their need for short- and long-term support is significant.

In response to our desire to do something to help those who are displaced, we have formed a group who is quickly building systems and calling on other resources to help by first providing meals. The needs are greater than delivering breakfast one day or dinner the next, which is where you come in. As a group, we are harnessing the power of our community of restaurants & food purveyors with the idea that by focusing all those who are wanting to help, we will be most effective.

We need your help with maintaining these efforts in the coming weeks and months. Rebuilding will be a long process; we're committed to helping the community for as long as they need us.

This tragedy will not define us, our response will. Any action, no matter how small, is helpful and greatly appreciated.

In Community,

Stuart Brioza, Traci Des Jardins, Sam Mogannam, Matt Cohen, Ravi Kapur, Craig Stoll, and many more!

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.
