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 1,417,583 pounds of food to 96 sites serving thousands and we've prevented 116,341 pounds of methane from warming our planet.

Community Spotlight

Donut Alley

Located in the heart of downtown Larkspur, Donut Alley serves handcrafted artisan donuts and fresh roasted, organic coffee. Under the leadership of Steve and Ann Pring, Donut Alley made their first bakery donation two years ago, and since then has contributed over 4,000 lbs of food. Our friends at Marin Services for Men, People’s Inter-Cities Fellowship, and St. Vincent de Paul always look forward to their deliveries of high quality treats from Donut Alley.

Sarah K.

We are so proud to salute this week’s Volunteer of the Week, Sarah K.! One of ExtraFood’s very first volunteer food runners, Sarah has been a dedicated member of our team since ExtraFood started in December 2013, epitomizing one our favorite terms, “Regular Volunteer.” In that time she has completed over 300 food trips, delivering a total of over 15 tons of food. Whoa! We, and our grateful partners at Kaiser Permanente, Whistlestop, Starbucks, and Performing are so grateful for her can-do, helpful attitude and long-time dedication to serving our community.
