|FFT’s 20th annual Dining Out For Life event is on December 2!Dining Out For Life raises funds to support our nutrition programs for people living with HIV and other serious medical conditions in Sonoma County. The event lands on Thursday December 2, which follows after World Aids Day. |
This event is Food For Thought’s most delicious fundraiser of the year, and we would love your help to make it a big success!
Plan to dine-in or take-out at one of dozens of participating Sonoma County restaurants on December 2! Participating restaurants will be generously donating a portion of their sales to Food For Thought that day.
|We Need Ambassadors!|
Food For Thought is looking for volunteer ambassadors for Dining Out For Life on the day of the event. Volunteer shifts are available to welcome guests for breakfast, lunch or dinner at a local eatery. Contact HelenM@FFTfoodbank.org for more information.
