                                        Dear Friends,
                                        In our 21st year of providing food to people living with hunger,
                                        the saying “what you do in practice, you do in the game” became
                                        a watchword for the Redwood Empire Food Bank.
                                        As a donor, you have stayed by our side as the number of people we
                                        serve has steadily increased to 60,000 a month.
                                        We continue to be “in the game” — serving more people than ever,
                                        facing increased expenses and expanded food distributions through-
                                        out Sonoma County. As an organization that is driven by a mission
                                        to end hunger in our community, we are compelled — with your con-
                                        tinued support — to do all we can to feed everyone who is hungry.
