Community Spotlight

Marinitas Restaurant

Marinitas serves tasty Latin inspired meals, using local and seasonal products, in a very lively atmosphere. Our Operations Manager, Kathy, loves their chile relleno. Delicious! Marinitas has been donating food from the early days of ExtraFood.org as part of our Planned Giving program. In that program, we ask restaurants, caterers, and other food-service establishments to make a little extra of something for us to pick up and deliver to one of our 46 nonprofit recipients. Our recipients love Marinitas’ food! Check ‘em out: http://marinitas.net/
