The Redwood Empire Food Bank partnered with radio station SEIU Local 102.1 and Santa Rosa Junior College’s Classified Senate for a fall food drive with donation depots at the Santa Rosa and Petaluma campuses and the Public Safety Training Center.

Main campus collection stations are at Bailey Hall and Bertolini Student Center in Santa Rosa and at the Mike Smith Hall bookstore in Petaluma.

Redwood Empire Food Bank guidelines lists canned and dry foods as ideal contributions and asks for no glass or homemade food donations.

“A lot of the times people think they might not need extra free food resources. but even if your working or maybe getting FAFSA you still might be able to get some help out of the community,” said Maria Fuentes, food connections coordinator at the Redwood Empire Food Bank.
