AIDS and HIV don't make headlines much any more, but that doesn't mean they have gone away. So Food for Thought, the Sonoma County AIDS Food Bank is working to feed just as many people as ever.
A sizable share of the clients served by Food For Thought have special dietary needs that correspond to their medical conditions, and Deputy Executive Director Rachel Gardner says they make every effort to meet those needs.
One of Food For Thought's major annulafundraising events, the Calabash gourd art auction is coming around again on Sunday, Oct. 3.
