Community Spotlight

A Fork Full of Earth

A farm-to-table catering business, A Fork Full of Earth crafts original, seasonally driven menus cultivated entirely from Marin and Sonoma County’s organic and transitional local farms and artisans. This month, in partnership with ExtraFood they initiated a special program offering their clients the option to purchase additional portions of their delicious dishes to donate to ExtraFood. What a wonderful way to give back to our community! Our friends at Mill Street Center were touched and grateful for their and their clients’ generous and delicious donation this weekend. We are so proud to partner with such a bighearted, community-minded business!

Denise V. & Tom H.

In less than 6 months, Denise and Tom have already delivered over a half ton of food across Marin County. Starting out as volunteer food runners at the Sunday Marin Farmers Market, they have quickly joined the ranks of those special volunteers that jump in to fill some of our harder to fill weekly food trips. Just when we think no one will take a food trip, here come Denise and Tom to save the day. We’re so grateful to them for helping us to fill in the gaps and ensure that no need goes unfulfilled.
