Coronavirus Response: Sonoma Family Meal is serving our community!
We in the earliest days of this situation, and are working on low-touch solutions to help our community AND help our farmers and restaurants. We are working directly with agencies like Council on Aging, Corazon, Community Action Partnership, Positive Images and others to make sure food gets directly to those who need it most.
In the first week of the shelter-in-place requirements SFM has…
- Provided $10,000 in gift cards to Lola’s Market
- Partnered with FEED Sonoma to purchase 60 produce boxes (from local farmers) underserved populations
- Partnered with Single Thread Restaurant and Farm to produce meals for more than 500 individuals.
How can you help?
SFM has set up a fund for the Coronavirus outbreak that will be 100% designated to provide win-win for our local food community and those in need. EVERY DOLLAR will be used to PAY local farmers, local restaurants providing food support, local food purveyors and local gift cards. SFM will use reserve funds for any administrative work. We are a VOLUNTEER-RUN organization with a single paid employee: Our female chef.
You can be assured your money goes where it is needed, not to overhead and salaries. Our funding is from people like you, who believe in people like us.
