BoDean Company’s Community Involvement

BoDean Company is committed to the many communities it serves. This committment is not just based on company goals, but also upon the efforts of our employee’s service where they live. They too find the time to become leaders in their respective communities by way of youth sports programs, church affiliations and general interest in community affairs.

Here are some of the organizations that BoDean Co. has contributed to in our community:


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 community through 11 innovative programs, serving 133 charitable organizations, including emergency food pantries/closets, shelters and dining rooms, childcare centers/youth programs, group homes, and disaster relief agencies. 

REFB responds to the immediate needs of people seeking help through the provision of healthy food and nutrition education and pursues long-term solutions to food insecurity through public policy and the development of partnerships with civic, faith-based, corporate and government organizations and, most importantly, individuals in our community.
