Bay Area Bountiful

But a lot of people aren’t able to enjoy that bounty. A public forum Thursday afternoon hopes to refocus attention on the problem and what can be done to address it.


 Sonoma County’s 35.5 million missed meals in 2014 is a stunningly large number. Gail Atkins, Director of Programs for the Redwood Empire Food Bank, explains how it was calculated.



Despite that shortfall, Sonoma County is already doing a great deal to help alleviate food insecurity notes Joseph McIntrye of Ag Innovations, and that will be part of the conservation at the Hunger Index Forum.
