Community Spotlight

Marin Academy

Marin Academy​, a private high school in San Rafael, provides students with a healthy and varied daily meal plan, and Chef Tyler has recently been donating his delicious extra food whenever he can. We’d like to receive their food donations more often but it’s so good that most of it gets gobbled up by the students!

Rod and Beatrix

Rod & Beatrix are a great father-daughter team who jump in when they can, offering their time for a variety of food trips. What a great way for a dad to spend some extra time with his daughter while contributing to our community! Beatrix’s photo was on the front page of the Marin IJ this week, featuring the work that her “green team” is doing in getting local restaurants to stop using plastic straws and use paper ones instead. Way to go Beatrix!

St. Vincent de Paul Society of Marin County

We’ve been partnering with St. Vincent’s, located in downtown San Rafael, since the early days of ExtraFood. One of the many great things about working with them is that they’re open 7 days a week to receive our food donations. Their Free Dining Room was created in 1981 as a free kitchen to serve Marin County’s hungry citizens, has been open every day of every year since then, and has served more than two million meals to date. Amazing people, amazing organization.
