As Cornellians, we seek to bond with each other in good times and tough times. Unfortunately, with the outbreak of COVID-19, especially in the Bay Area, in-person group gatherings have become too much of a risk to the community.
As a result of the growing number of cases, we have decided to focus on keeping the Cornell NorCal community connected via virtual events in the meantime. We will keep this community up to date on any changes on upcoming events. We hope to see you healthy at an event in the near future.
If you have questions about the status of specific events, please check our website or email us at info@cornellnorcal.com.

Join fellow Cornell Alumni this holiday season to give back by volunteering at the Redwood Empire Food Bank in Santa Rosa, and help support our neighbors who have been impacted by the recent devastating fires. 

The Redwood Empire Food Bank (REFB) is the largest hunger-relief organization serving north coastal California, from Sonoma County to the Oregon border. Since 1987, the REFB has been helping our neighbors in need and currently operates 12 innovative programs under three strategic initiatives – Every Child, Every Day; Senior Security; and the Neighborhood Hunger Network.


Redwood Empire Food Bank,

3990 Brickway Blvd. Santa Rosa, CA 95403.


9am to Noon on December 16, 2017. Please arrive by 8:45am so we can assemble the group together ahead of time.

Here are a few guidelines from Redwood Empire Food Bank:

1. Closed toed shoes are mandatory because you will be working in a warehouse environment.

2. Dressing in layers is recommended because the temperature in the warehouse can be unpredictable. 

3. You must be at least 14 years old. 12 & 13 year olds are welcome to volunteer if they are accompanied by an adult at all times. 

NOTE: A few days before the event, we will try and connect the registrants who are interested in carpooling.

Questions? Please contact Raj Uppala, MBA '15 or Dan Herr, '07
