Emergency Earthquake Food Distribution in Rio Dell, CA
Early Tuesday, December 20, 2022, a 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck Humboldt County off the coast of Ferndale causing damage to roads and homes, shaking residents from their sleep, and leaving tens of thousands without electricity. This also caused a secondary emergency leaving thousands of households without working cooking facilities, and untold food spoilage across the county in the days right before the Christmas holiday.  Since the disaster struck Food for People has been working to reach the residents most impacted including emergency food distributions in the communities of Rio Dell, Fortuna, and in Eureka.
