Food Recovery in Marin County: By picking up excess fresh food from businesses and immediately delivering it to nonprofits serving Marin’s most vulnerable children, adults, and families, we address the critical issues of hunger, food waste, and global warming.

We've delivered more than 1,638,353 pounds of food to 100 sites serving thousands and we've kept 134,524 pounds of methane from warming our planet.

Hilary K.

Clearly not one to sit idle, Hilary has already completed more than 15 food trips since joining ExtraFood just 2 weeks ago. Wow! Her energy and willingness to step in to cover volunteer gaps in our food recovery schedule have been so very much appreciated during the very busy holiday season. We know that she will continue to be a wonderful asset to our volunteer food recovery team and we’re thrilled to have her on board.
