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 1,551,644 pounds of food to 98 sites serving thousands and we've prevented 127,389 pounds of methane from warming our planet.

Community Spotlight

Whole Foods Mill Valley

We’ve been picking up donations of fresh produce, baked goods, dairy products, and prepared food from the Mill Valley Whole Foods on Miller Ave. for nearly four years. To the delight of our recipient partners, they’ve recently added two more regular donations for a total of four weekly donations. We are truly grateful for the bounty of healthy food that comes from Whole Foods.

Joan F.

Joan has a wonderful knack for identifying and picking up unfilled food trips on any given day. She is always eager to help and we were so grateful for her support during the Sonoma and Napa wildfires crisis this October. While our staff was busily connecting generous food donors to Marin-based popup shelters for fire victims, she jumped in to help deliver some of these very important donations. We feel so fortunate to have such an energetic and positive force on our team!
