Janet K.

After doing her very first food trip, Janet decided to commit to owning a regular weekly trip from Nugget Markets in Corte Madera to the People’s Inter-Cities Fellowship in Marin City. She has recovered and delivered more than 4 tons of food since she joined our team 2.5 years ago. Owning a regular trip is an important building block of our program and we are grateful to Janet for her long-term dedication to our cause!

Mill Street Center

A Homeward Bound of Marin facility, the Mill Street Center has been working with us since our very first week of operation—providing a critically important service to homeless men and women as the only night-to-night emergency shelter in the county. Besides delivering occasional spontaneous donations that match Mill Street’s needs, ExtraFood delivers regular donations of fresh farmers’ market produce and individual prepackaged meals to the great people at Mill Street. This program has helped so many individuals in our county find a safe, warm, and dry place to spend the night. We’re honored to work with the Mill Street Center!
