All About Food For Thought

Located in Forestville, California, Food For Thought is a non-profit 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, we have 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.

We currently provide food to more than 675 people, including men, women, and dependent children of parents with HIV/AIDS.

We provide services in English and Spanish. While many clients enjoy their weekly visit to select their food at our beautiful facility, more than 1/3 of our clients receive delivery service because they are home-bound due to ill health or lack of transportation.

In 25 years of service to the community, Food For Thought has developed a reputation as a wonderful place to work and volunteer time. In 2010, we were honored to have our work acknowledged by the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors. 

Jefferson Award2010On March 16, 2010 we were thrilled to be presented with the Jefferson Award for Public Service. In a wonderful turn of events, one of our 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 us with the confidence of knowing your funds will be put to good use in the community.
