About Food For Thought

Location:

6550 Railroad Ave., Forestville, CA 95436, US

Mission Statement

To foster health and healing with food and compassion

Description

Food For Thought is a nonprofit organization that provides lifesaving nutrition support to low-income people living with COVID-19, HIV and other serious illnesses across Sonoma County. For more than 30 years, we have engaged in service to our community to provide healthy food to our neighbors in need. A group of friends in Guerneville founded FFT in 1988 amidst the AIDS epidemic to provide groceries to our seriously ill neighbors. Over time, we have shifted our focus from providing end-of-life care to providing comprehensive nutrition services, and we have expanded our eligibility to those affected by a wide range of serious illnesses.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, demand for our programs has skyrocketed. In 2020, FFT brought healthy food to more than 4,000 people in Sonoma County.
