Advertise With A News

Welcome to We are delighted to promote your business or organization on our premiere online website.

Food for Thought/ was founded in 2007 by Doni Chamberlain of Redding, and son Joseph Domke.

Food for Thought/ is locally owned and locally interested. It features compelling, interesting, entertaining, exhilarating and informative 24/7 content that attracts tens of thousands of engaged, tech-savvy people whose incomes and education levels are higher than the average North State citizen.

We continue to grow in both content and readership.

Geographically, our readership is North State centric, drawing from Shasta, Butte, Tehama, Siskiyou and Trinity counties. Our next-higher readership concentration reaches from Medford to Sacramento; Susanville to the coast.

We have your perfect demographic. Do you have a website? Food for Thought/ is the ideal place to put your ad before thousands of potential customers and clients.

Ads should be simple, and graphic-dominant. The most clickable ads are those that are specific.

Each ad clicks through to your chosen url, whether it’s a website or a Facebook page.  Because Food for Thought/ is electronic, and our advertisers are tech-savvy, we can only promote businesses that have an electronic landing page of some kind.

Our prices are competitive, and will give your ads ’round-the-clock exposure with a variety of options.
