ExtraFood's mission is to end hunger and wasted food in the North Bay, California. We rescue excess fresh food from businesses, schools, and gardens and immediately deliver it to people facing food insecurity.

The Solution: County-Wide Food Recovery

We fill the gap between those who have food and those who need it.

ExtraFood rescues excess fresh food from any North Bay business, garden, or school and immediately delivers it to nonprofit partners serving vulnerable people.


Our staff finds food donations that match our partners' needs, such as prepared foods, produce, dairy, eggs, meat, bread, packaged goods, and baked goods.

Our volunteers and staff drivers pick up and deliver the food — 365 days a year, free of charge
