Feeding Disaster Victims, Helping Restaurants

A wildfire during a pandemic? We're here.

Sonoma Family Meal is currently serving more than 1,000 meals per day to evacuees of the 2020 wildfires raging in Sonoma County and throughout the Bay Area

Embedded at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, our restaurant network creates safe, individually-packaged, chef-made meals for those who've lost or been forced out of homes. Whether that's at hotels or at evacuation centers, we're adapting to serve our community once again

It's not an easy feat, but we're not only helping our neighbors -- we're also supporting already-devastated restaurants, caterers and farmers by paying them to prepare these important meals.

Since the beginning of the pandemic Sonoma Family Meal has served more than 150,000 meals to seniors and food-insecure families, and paid our restaurant network more than $1.2 million,

SFM, a 501c3 non-profit, has served more than 400,000 meals since 2017, and was founded by food writer Heather Irwin during the horrific Tubbs Fire that destroyed more than 5,000 homes in Santa Rosa, California.
