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, wasted food, and global warming.

We've delivered more than 1,840,251 pounds of food to 104 sites serving thousands and we've kept 151,182 pounds of methane from warming our planet.

Community Spotlight

Kaiser Permanente

Kaiser donates their extra food to us 7 days a week, and the bulk of their donations are complete, microwaveable, mostly organic meals. These meals are highly coveted by a number of our recipient partners whose primary food needs include proteins and complete meals. Kaiser contributes to the health and wellness of our community in so many ways, and we’re grateful that they’re a longtime member of the ExtraFood community.

Renee T.

The ultimate Super Mom, Renee shares her time, energy, and tremendous heart with ExtraFood as both a food runner (with 3 recurring weekly food trips!) and office helper while working at another bay area nonprofit and raising a family. In just 18 months, Renee has already delivered over 13,000 lbs of food and completed nearly 100 food trips. When they are out of school, her kids accompany her on food trips, learning valuable skills about helping those in need. We are truly grateful for Renee’s eagerness to help, excellent problem-solving skills, and sunny personality.
