Food Recovery in Marin County: By rescuing 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 2,476,846 pounds of food to 119 sites in Marin, preventing 203,570 pounds of methane from warming our planet & reaching 8,000+ people every month.

Community Spotlight

Nugget Markets

Nugget Markets has been generously donating highly-coveted, high-quality donations of produce, meat, dairy, baked goods, and prepared foods to us since our early days of operation. If that wasn’t enough, each of their three Marin-based stores – Tiburon, Corte Madera and Novato – recently donated gift cards to us so our highest need recipients could shop for the food they need most this holiday season. Nugget’s generosity truly makes our hearts sing! What’s more, their delightful, helpful staff is such a joy to work with. Thank you, thank you, Nugget Markets for your generosity and continued commitment to making our community a better place for all!

Laura and Brian M.

What a pair! When the leadership role of our 4th Sunday Farmers Market volunteer team opened up, this incredible duo combined forces to lead an amazing team of volunteers from their respective Rotary clubs: the San Rafael Evening Rotary (Laura’s club) and the Rotary Club of Terra Linda (Brian’s club). With such competent leadership and a robust pool of willing and able volunteers (and Brian’s big truck for those extra large harvest-season farmers market donations!), their team will never want for helping hands. What’s more, Laura and Brian stepped up to lead our pulled-together 1st Sunday Farmers Market dream team this month when our original team could not make it. Two farmers markets, two weekends in a row, two fabulous leaders, two super Rotary clubs… we are all too aware of how lucky we are to have these two on our team!
