Relaying excess food to the hungry throughout Sonoma County

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!

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, 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. 



SONOMA Food Runners is run entirely by volunteers. You can make a difference if you have food and/or money to donate or if you would like to be a Food Santa picking up and delivering food, we would love to have you join our team to help feed our hungry in Sonoma County.
