Food For Thought
Located in Forestville, California Food For Thought is a nonprofit grassroots organization dedicated to meeting the nutritional needs of persons living with or affected by AIDS/HIV disease in Sonoma County.
The organization was founded in 1988. Since that time, Food For Thought has provided free weekly grocery bags of canned and boxed food, fresh produce, nutritional supplements, vitamins, and whatever other goodies are on hand, along with frozen meals for people severely affected by AIDS.
Food For Thought currently provides food to more than 645 people, including men, women, and dependent children of parents with HIV/AIDS.
Food For Thought provides services in English and Spanish. While many clients enjoy their weekly visit to select their food at their beautiful facility, more than 1/3 of their clients receive delivery service because they are home-bound due to ill health or lack of transportation.
In more than 21 years of service to the community, Food For Thought has developed a reputation as a wonderful place to work and volunteer time. In 2010 they were honored to have their work acknowledged by the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors.
On March 16, 2010 Food For Thought was presented with the Jefferson Award for Public Service. In a wonderful turn of events, one of their long time volunteers was also presented with his own award. It was a banner day for the organization.
Governed with a sense of stewardship and run with a small staff and admirably low administrative expenses, Food For Thought is also an ideal place to donate goods and services, as well as make financial contributions. You can donate to them with the confidence of knowing your funds will be put to good use in the community.
