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 1,475,685 pounds of food to 97 sites serving thousands and we've prevented 121,122 pounds of methane from warming our planet.
