IMPROVING OUR PROVISION OF HELP ANNUAL REPORT | FISCAL YEAR 2017


Preparing for the Moment On October 7, 2017, the Redwood Empire Food Bank hosted our 30-year anniversary open house, welcoming the entire community to celebrate what we’ve accomplished together over the decades. The next day, Sonoma County was besieged by a firestorm that would change our lives for years to come. As the fires progressed, destroying homes and upending lives, the REFB launched our disaster response program, called Station 3990. For weeks, the REFB embraced our role as a second responder, working seven days a week, providing food to thousands of families who were displaced by the fire. The proximity of our 30th anniversary and the Sonoma Complex Fire caused me to reflect on how far the REFB has come over the years that we’ve been serving the people of Sonoma County. Our ability to respond to the disaster came from many years of generosity from supporters who understand – without question – that people sometimes need help. Spawned from a study commissioned by the Board of Supervisors in 1986, the REFB was created after hunger was identified as an issue requiring attention. Fast forward to this past October, we have become an organization capable of providing food to anyone in need, no matter what the cause - a family emergency or natural disaster. This annual report provides service and financial information for the period before the fire. Ironically, our financial condition is best demonstrated by our ability to continue helping neighbors who were in need prior to the disaster, while simultaneously responding to both the immediate needs of evacuees, as well as the long-term needs of survivors who have become part of our ongoing service to the community.

Complete audited financial statements are available online at refb.org.

It is important to note that 100% of the funding received to address the Sonoma Complex Fire was private. The REFB did not receive a single dollar from federal, state, county, or municipal sources. This fact was not part of a strategic funding decision on our part. Rather, the reality is that hunger relief in the event of a disaster has been proven to be a private endeavor. With that knowledge comes clarity in our decisions and planning as we move forward. We remain grateful for all that our supporters have done to create a food bank capable of standing up to the ferocity of the worst fire in the history of California. With that experience behind us, and your continuing support moving forward, we are committed to ending hunger whenever and however it finds its way to the people we call neighbors.

Volunteers are vital in our hungerrelief work. Each month we rely on their generous support, which would otherwise require the work of 45 full-time staff members. Join the team by spending a couple of hours with friends and family to help feed our neighbors. Build team spirit and company morale volunteering with your business. Enhance your cooking skills volunteering in the Kitchen Collective. Provide support at a benefit event or at one of our distribution sites. There are so many fun and rewarding ways to make a real impact. Sign up for a shift today at refb.org.

Join the Redwood Empire Food Bank family and help end hunger in our community. Your generous contribution supports the innovative hunger-relief programs that strengthen our food safety net and nourish our neighbors. Thanks to the generosity of our volunteers, support from community and corporate food drives, and food donations from farmers, manufacturers, and food retailers, we are able to stretch every $1 donation into $4 worth of healthy groceries. Act now to end hunger. Donate online at refb.org.

Food drives make a critical difference in the lives of 82,000 of our neighbors facing food insecurity, immediately stocking our shelves with staple food items for daily distribution to our programs and our 170 charitable partner organizations. You’ve probably seen our barrels in businesses in your community, filled with cans and boxes of nonperishable food donations for our neighbors in need. Hosting a food drive is the most direct way to partner with the REFB and join in the fight against hunger in Sonoma County. Sign up to host a food drive today at refb.org.

Every Child, Every Day Under the Every Child, Every Day initiative, the Redwood Empire Food Bank operates programs specifically designed to end childhood hunger. Healthy food is strategically distributed at Sonoma County schools, public parks, libraries, and at community gathering places in high-need neighborhoods so that children have access to adequate nutrition throughout the year. Four programs were operated under the Every Child, Every Day initiative last year: Afterschool Café, Megan Furth Harvest Pantry, School Pantry, and Summer Lunch. For more information about how each of these programs is addressing childhood hunger and nutrition, visit refb.org.

Our Diabetes Wellness program offered 500 of our neighbors living with type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes 30-35 pounds of diabetic appropriate foods each month last year, saving $80 in the monthly budgets of low-income seniors and adults in our community. Leveraging food as medicine, our Diabetes Wellness program distributed a diverse array of fresh vegetables and vitamin-rich fruits alongside sugar free, low-sodium, and protein-dense staple groceries at more than 35 locations in 11 cities throughout Sonoma County, as well as one location in Mendocino County. The program also added seasonal grocery boxes to the mix last year, offering hearty items like farro and lentils in the winter months, alongside vegetables like broccoli, carrots, and celery. Lighter items like whole grain cereal, melons, and citrus were offered in the spring and summer months. And with each box, program participants received recipe cards for easy to prepare meals like vegetable and lentil soup and baked oatmeal to help utilize the items received and maximize nutrition.

Harvest Pantry Our Megan Furth Harvest Pantry program continued to thrive last year, providing an average of 300 low-income families with children ages six and younger, as well as pregnant women, consistent access to nourishing food and dynamic nutrition lessons to help prevent childhood anemia and obesity. The program operated at nine sites in Sonoma County, each offering families 30-35 pounds of staple foods and a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables each week. The bounty distributed through the program not only provided critical nutrition and health education to low-income families with young children, but saved these families $60 to $70 each week at the grocery store. Additionally, the program’s robust nutrition lessons helped families make informed choices at the market and at home when preparing meals for children and adults alike. Interactive presentations on the sugar content in sodas and popular fruit drinks, for example, and discussions on the many differences between whole foods and processed foods empowered program participants to lead healthy lives.

As the largest of the Redwood Empire Food Bank’s 12 hunger-relief programs, our Produce Pantry is crucial to the health and well-being of our low-income neighbors. The program, open to anyone in need of food assistance, distributed over $7 million worth of fresh produce last year, totaling 3.3 million pounds, to an average of 2,870 people each week at 30 sites in nine towns throughout Sonoma County. The program not only expanded its reach last year through an increase in the number of food distribution sites, but also offered a greater diversity of fresh produce. In fact, 30 varieties of fresh produce items were distributed last year - kabocha, acorn and butternut squash in the fall were followed by pattypan, zucchini, and yellow squash in summer; locally grown tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, cabbage, and eggplant were harvested from our partner farms throughout the growing season; rich in flavor Clamshell, Pioppini and King Trumpet mushrooms offered food recipients a healthy alternative to meat. And, kid-friendly fruits, including bananas, strawberries, peaches and plums offered vitamin-rich options for even the pickiest of young eaters.

Kitchen Collective Our Kitchen Collective program continued to flourish last year, receiving quality food donations from community gleaners and major food retailers that helped amplify flavor and bolster nutrition in Kitchen Collective frozen entrées. Donated King Trumpet mushrooms from local food donor, Gourmet Mushrooms, for example, were roasted in teriyaki and used in a tasty fried rice. Freshly harvested Swiss chard and first-of-theseason tomatoes from Front Porch Farm in Healdsburg were used to pack flavor and nutrition into a baked vegetable pasta dish. Donated Straus Family Creamery and Clover Stornetta butter and milk were used alongside donations of fresh eggplant and lentils in a vegetarian moussaka. In total, 30,000 hearty and healthy Kitchen Collective meals were distributed last fiscal year, each one nourishing a neighbor in need.

“I love the zucchini

lasagna. Not only is it yummy, but the portion is large enough to provide me with the equivalent of two meals. And because the meals are frozen I can save the leftovers, and easily warm them up later.

This past year was another exciting one for the program. In July, the REFB received a $50,000 grant from the Morgan Stanley Foundation to fund the expansion of the School Pantry program to Roseland Elementary, while helping to sustain eight existing sites in Sonoma County. This new program site now provides weekly provisions of fresh produce and healthy staple groceries to nearly 100 Roseland school children and their families.

The REFB School Pantry food distribution sites begin anew each year in August, distributing 25 pounds of fresh produce and staple grocery items to more than 900 lowincome families with more than 2,200 children who are enrolled in high-need elementary schools throughout Sonoma County. In the fall of 2016, the REFB opened a vital new School Pantry food distribution site in Lake County, significantly expanding our reach to low-income families in our service region. The new East Lake Elementary School site ensures at-risk children in the Clearlake Oaks community have weekly access to the nutrition they need to grow and learn throughout the academic year.

Community Food Drives

James and Lynn Mattison Donald and Kathryne McCorkle Michael and Mary Lee McCune McDonald Family Foundation Kim McEachron

Each year, the REFB relies on the support of passionate individuals in our community who rally their classmates, colleagues, family, friends, and neighbors to organize food drives. These drives help keep our warehouse stocked throughout the year, ensuring that those in need of help always have access to quality and nutritious shelf-stable groceries. We received continued support from generous local partners like Sonoma Country Day School, the Rob & Joss Food Fund, and Oliver’s Market last fiscal year. And following the devastating Sonoma Complex Fire, our community came together like never before, collecting tens of thousands of pounds of non-perishable groceries for our neighbors who were in need of assistance before the disaster, and those who found themselves in need as a result of the disaster. Sign up to host a food drive today at refb.org and help nourish local families facing food insecurity. 15

Community Fundraisers Over the last year, thousands have joined together to raise funds in support of the Redwood Empire Food Bank’s hunger-relief work. During our fiscal year, for example, longtime supporter Montgomery Village raised funds for the REFB through their summer concert series, G & C Auto Body and Sonic collected donations in the Sonoma County Human Race, the California Artisan Cheese Festival donated 10% of ticket sales, and our local 12 year-old hunger-relief hero Memphis Roetter inspired donors to give more than $6,250 to help fortify our food safety net. Following the Sonoma Complex Fire, fundraisers arose in nearly every corner of our region. Local restaurants like Lowell’s and Handline in Sebastopol, and Cafe Lucia in Healdsburg donated portions of diner receipts. Friends at SF Bach Choir, St. George Spirits in Alameda, Shotgun Players in Berkeley, fraternities and sororities at Stanford and Cal, are just a few of the hundreds that helped fuel our response to the disaster by galvanizing support in their local communities.

“Oliver’s Market is

committed to serving our community in as many ways as we can. Supporting the work of the REFB ensures that no one in our community will go hungry. In addition to helping individuals, the support they provide to other nonprofits in our region allows those organizations to focus on their work instead of sourcing food, which benefits everyone. The work of the REFB is essential for Sonoma County.

- Steve Maass, Founder and President of Oiiver’s Market. Oliver’s recent One Bell Saves Supper raised more than $7,000 for the REFB through $1 customer donations.
