Supporting Sonoma Family Meal


At Harvest Card, we are proud to support Sonoma Family Meal. SFM is a non-profit company that provides chef-made meals for those in need. They currently partner with over 30 local farmers and chefs to provide high quality meals, with no proof of need required.    Created in October 2017, Sonoma Family Meal has already been able to provide over 120,000 meals to those in need. Though its creation began with the 2017 wildfires in Sonoma County, SFM is now growing and looking to move beyond disaster relief and into a strong, vital community organization.   Harvest card has been an active supporter of Sonoma Family Meal since its inception and could not be more proud to collaborate with such a great organization in Sonoma County.
