Join us for our 6th annual gala!

This year we are celebrating 35 years of service to Sonoma County! Please join us in our efforts to raise $273,000 to continue providing medically tailored meals, healthy groceries, and nutrition support to over 4,000 people living with serious medical conditions.

Over three decades ago, a group of five volunteers gathered around a kitchen table to feed their neighbors in need. Since then our programs, services, number of volunteers and number of clients have all grown exponentially. On Sunday, June 9, 2024, we will continue the tradition of gathering around the table at our 6th annual gala, Our Long Table, to raise critically needed funds that continue to support and nourish Food For Thought’s clients.

This event is once again being hosted at the wonderful Vine Hill House, located on the O’Connell Vineyards in Sebastopol. While overlooking hundreds of acres of world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards, guests will enjoy refreshing summer wines, craft beer, live music, an elegant multi-course dinner, an exclusive live auction and a raffle. An online auction will also be launched the week prior to the event for those who may not be able to join in person.
