Ann Walker Catering
AWC was founded in 1976 by executive chef Ann Walker, who travels throughout the world conducting food and wine research, and looking for new recipes and ingredients. AWC incorporates local, sustainable and organic ingredients whenever they can into their menus. This week, we picked up our first donation from AWC and delivered it to the seniors at Tam House. Of course, caterers can never risk making too little for their events, so we’re happy to pick up their extra when they have too much! http://www.annwalkercatering.com
Joelle has been an ExtraFood volunteer for almost two years! She did a number of regular trips for quite some time, but lately has been switching things up and trying out a medley of different trips. This week she jumped in on a trip with a brand-new donor, and we relaxed that much more knowing it was in Joelle’s hands. We’re delighted that Joelle continues to be such a dependable and loyal volunteer.
Novato Youth Center
NYC’s mission: to inspire and prepare local youth to succeed. They accomplish this by supporting their development in academics and learning; health and well being; personal enrichment through arts and athletics; and social interaction and community engagement. Annually they serve 2800 youth and their families. One-third of their staff is bilingual, so they can serve a culturally and socio-economically diverse mix of families. We’ve begun bringing them a wonderful donation from Nugget Markets’ Novato store and we are working to find more donations in Marin that match their needs. www.novatoyouthcenter.org
