Community Spotlight

Firehouse Coffees & Teas

Within weeks of opening, Firehouse Coffees & Teas began donating their extra food to help vulnerable members in our community. Their delicious prepared salads and sandwiches have lit up the faces of the families and kids served by our recipient partners at the People’s Inter-Cities Fellowship in Marin City and LifeSTEPS afterschool program in Tiburon. We love Firehouse for their great coffees, teas, food, and for giving back to those in need!

Sarah Sl.

It’s hard to believe that Sarah has been volunteering with ExtraFood for only 6 months. In that short time, she has already completed 45 food trips and delivered over 1 ton of food! Within a few weeks of joining ExtraFood, she became a regular member of the Thursday Civic Center Farmers Market team, delivering some of the country’s best produce to our friends at St. Vincent de Paul every week. Committed to helping whenever she can, Sarah always fits in at least 1-2 additional food trips into her busy weekly schedule. We are so grateful to Sarah for her energy and dedication to our cause.

As part of their community outreach program, St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church participates in the REST program (Rotating Emergency Shelter Team), providing monthly dinners for the hungry from November to April. They also prepare weekly hot lunches for the homeless year-round. We are honored to help the church in their mission by delivering prepared food donations from The Cheesecake Factory and baked goods and pizzas from Arizmendi Bakery several times a month.
