Community Spotlight

Starbucks, Terra Linda

Since joining up with ExtraFood in May of this year, Starbucks, Terra Linda has already donated over 750 lbs of delicious ready-to-eat prepared meals and snacks and pastries. Eager to distribute their extra food to community members in need, they recently increased their donations from two days and week to six! We are truly grateful to all of the wonderful employees at this Starbucks for their dedication to helping make a difference in their community.

It didn’t take Ras long to jump in and take “ownership” of two weekly food trips from Nugget Novato and Starbucks in downtown San Rafael. To date, she has completed over 115 food trips, delivering 8,700+ pounds of food. All while managing a high-level corporate job. Now that’s dedication!

Rotary Valley Senior Village

A BRIDGE Housing property created in partnership with Rotary Club of Terra Linda and the Marin County Redevelopment Agency, this 80-unit low-income housing project in Lucas Valley has been in operation since 1997. Every Sunday, the residents gather together and create a mini food pantry to distribute the produce that we bring them from the Civic Center farmers market. And they are always excited to receive their delicious weekly donation from Bon Appetit Management Company on Thursdays!
