Community Spotlight

MH Bread & Butter

MH Bread and Butter, an artisan bakery in San Anselmo, has been open for about 18 months and their reviews have been outstanding. People rave about their bread, sandwiches, breakfast items and salads, as do we. They serve breakfast and lunch and all of their food is absolutely top-notch. The restaurant is very family-friendly, light-filled and has some long wooden communal tables, which together give it a homey and welcoming atmosphere! Our recipients look forward to their tasty breads, muffins and croissants each week. http://mhbreadandbutter.com

Hank’s a new volunteer who has jumped in right away, with lots of enthusiasm, taking on a variety of food trips, including a big delivery to San Geronimo Community Center. Hank likes variety in his choice of
food trips and has even fit in a couple of trips at the Sunday Civic Center Farmers Market. Hank also volunteers elsewhere in the community, so we’re thankful that he has chosen to share some of his time with ExtraFood!

Our Recipient of the Week is LIFT-Levántate, whose mission is to promote healthy, equitable communities, especially those communities with limited resources. Their Community Health Hub in the Canal is one of the examples of their “whole health” model, where they provide healthy produce, physical activity classes, and health screenings to underserved residents. This week ExtraFood will be providing LIFT with donated food for their 10am-1pm March 7 event at McInnis Park that LIFT is presenting in collaboration with Marin County Parks, “Family Fun: Spring Wakeup.” http://www.marincountyparks.org/depts/pk/calendar#/?i=1
