Volunteer and make a difference!
Feeding It Forward will be recovering excess food from BottleRock and distributing it to community organizations throughout the valley that serves those most in need.

On the Road against Food Insecurity
Thank you all who have donated time and resources as we help those in need and facing food insecurity.
It allows us to provide food in our community through our services during this time of increased cost.
The monetary donations help cover the variable costs (fuel, supplies, containers, equipment, etc.) needed to recover, maintain food safety, and transport the fresh, perishable food safely and successfully to their final destinations; to the community-based organizations serving those in need throughout Napa County.
Thanks to everyone for making our community safer & healthier!
Wildfire Safety and Preparedness
Stay alert. California’s continued heat and drought conditions mean wildfire risks are high. Did you know the 5 years were the most destructive wildfire seasons in California history? This is a reminder that wildfires can happen at any time. Stay prepared, be ready to evacuate early, and make sure you have a 5-minute plan to get out safely and quickly.
