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, wasted food, and global warming.

We've delivered more than 1,701,324 pounds of food to 100 sites serving thousands and we've kept 139,722 pounds of methane from warming our planet.

Kate Re.

One of ExtraFood’s extraordinary “weekend warriors,” Kate has handled our Saturday pickups from the Novato Community Hospital since she began volunteering with ExtraFood last June. The weekend pickups allow her school-age children to accompany her on her food trips where they can acquire first-hand life lessons about reducing food waste and serving the less fortunate in their community. We feel so fortunate to have Kate and her compassionate children on our team!

San Geronimo Presbyterian Church

The San Geronimo Presbyterian Church, along with our partners at the San Geronimo Valley Community Center, acts as a “hub” for ExtraFood, playing a vital role in helping many individuals and families who struggle with hunger, isolation, and the “food desert” in West Marin. Their team of “Green Apron” volunteers proudly don their green ExtraFood aprons as they pick up multiple food donations throughout Marin each week and deliver them to the church for their food pantries and other community service-oriented events. We have been proudly supporting the church and the community they serve since 2014.
