When the fires are over, our work continues.
After serving thousands of meals to first responders and evacuees, Sonoma Family Meal will remain here to help our community. As life gets back to normal for most of us, Sonoma Family Meal continues to support families, couples and individuals experiencing the overwhelming task of taking care of children, dealing with insurance and building, working full-time jobs and the mental strain of everything on their plates.
SFM provides 4 chef-made meals for more than 80 families each week. That's 1200 servings packed up and ready to take home to wherever they are staying.
"SFM and the volunteers and staff have been an anchor to the kindness and outreach from our community. Not having to worry about grocery shopping and meal planning for part of the week has freed us up to focus on our long-term future. We have been worried and emotionally drained by the aftermath of the fire and having nourishment provided by the loving and caring SFM community has been so wonderful." -- Susan
