Do you need food due to the fires? Let us help

Sonoma County chefs are looking to feed those affected by the fires. Do you know of any needs? Let's get you connected.

As of Saturday afternoon, most Sonoma County shelters have reported being fine on food through Sunday. However, there are many chefs in Sonoma County and beyond who are desperate to help — and can make several hundred meals in commercial kitchens for as long as it is needed. People with special diets can be accommodated. 

Chefs from San Francisco, Kendall-Jackson, Backyard and others have been working tirelessly, but need to know how to help.

Any central location that needs food — be it evacuees, first-responders, government workers, media or other groups who are working through this event to help people — is welcome to contact me. Are you helping with animals and need food? Let us know.

Also, if you have a spot where people with family members staying with them can pick up meals, contact me. There are families with 10 people crammed into a house, and they need food too.

I am collaborating with food trucks and chefs who can continue to serve food throughout the next few weeks for folks that might be overlooked. If you have special needs — a shelter was trying to have a fun football themed dinner — I can try to arrange that. We are all here to help. Here are some ways to contact me:
