WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU:  A bag for extra food. We also welcome donations of paper grocery bags.

HOW OFTEN CAN YOU COME?  Once a month.

WHAT YOU'LL BE GIVEN:  We give up to three days' supply of well-balanced food. The amount of food given depends on the number of people in the household. We give one basic bag containing fruits, vegetables, beans and grains (cereal, pasta, bread) plus optional items including rice, peanut butter and meat (or vegetarian items).  Sometimes we will have available
extra items donated to us for distribution. A roller bag can be helpful, especially if you are walking or using public transportation.​

We are Friends in Service Here
Volunteers Working Together to Fight Hunger


F.I.S.H. (Friends in Service Here) operates the largest and oldest independent food pantry in Sonoma County.  Since 1972, we have provided food and hope, working together with our community to fight hunger.  We give wholesome groceries to anyone needing a helping hand — families, seniors, disabled, unemployed, working folks and homeless people.  Proof of income or residence is not required and there are no forms to fill out. The only qualification is the need for food. 

F.I.S.H. is a 501c-3 non-profit organization operated entirely by volunteers and 100% dependent on donations of food and money.  During 2017 F.I.S.H. distributed over 700,000 pounds of food to 58,000 people, half of them children.  Since the October firestorms, the need for food and housing has increased dramatically. We welcome your participation and assistance!​​
