Our mission is to alleviate hunger, prevent food waste and build community. We collect quality, donated perishable and prepared foods that would otherwise go to waste.
From Our Founder, June Michaels
When you ask June why she founded SONOMA Food Runners, she'll tell you with passionate indignation that it just doesn't make sense for people to go hungry in a place where there is such an abundance of food and tonnage of edible food going into landfills!!!
Inspired by familial traditions of sharing that were handed down from her Mother, SONOMA Food Runners was a mission waiting to be born once June saw the need after she landed in Sonoma County.
Food rescues have been popping up all over the world to feed the hungry and reduce the waste of good food. In the tradition of Bay Area leaders such as San Francisco's Food Runners, Marin's Extra Food.org, the East Bay's Food Shift and Peninsula Food Runners, SONOMA Food Runners is carrying the torch to Sonoma County and leading the way in sharing excess food with those in need.
The San Francisco based ecological non-profit, Matter of Trust, has generously agreed to partner with SONOMA Food Runners as a non-profit sponsor. This enables us to focus on building our organizational capacity before fully establishing our own non-profit status. Click on Matter of Trust icon to learn more. Matter of Trust is a registered 501(c)(3) non-proit making all donations tax deductible to the fullest extent of of the law.
