What is the SFM Emergency Food Network?
The Emergency Food Network was launched by Sonoma Family Meal in response to the outbreak of the Coronavirus in March 2020 with the goal of fighting food insecurity in our community during disasters.
SFM is working with a network of restaurant partners to provide meals to seniors and food-insecure families during shelter-in-place orders and beyond. Restaurants are paid for each meal by Sonoma Family Meal. Our funding comes from government grants and private donors.
Our goal is to help keep restaurants afloat, workers employed and farmers, restaurants and the food industry connected and supported. Our COVID-19 model is a departure from our wildfire relief operations which relied on an army of volunteers, chefs and farmers to create thousands of prepared meals in a single commercial kitchen.
