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.

Gillian M.

Making her way to ExtraFood just over a year ago with the aim of helping to get nutritious food to people in need, it didn’t take Gillian long to find her groove picking up and delivering extra food from the Wednesday Corte Madera Farmers Market. The farmers and other market vendors have come to know and trust Gillian with their extra food. They know that it will go to those who need it the most. Gillian has also been a tremendous help recently when we needed teams of volunteers to distribute two giant donations of thousands of pounds of prepared food from one of our regular food donors. She jumped right in on both occasions to deliver food to multiple recipient organizations, helping to ensure that none of it went to waste. We are so grateful for Gillian!
