Community Spotlight

Perry’s on Magnolia

Opened in 2015 and located in downtown Larkspur’s historic Lark Creek Inn space, Perry’s on Magnolia carries forth the 50-year-old Perry’s San Francisco tradition of serving classic American food and warm personable service. Nestled amongst the redwood trees and on the bank of the Arroyo Holo Creek, Perry’s on Magnolia features a variety of outdoor dining options, on their Patio and in the Grove, in addition to a large bar, and casual, lively dining atmosphere. A partner in our Community Meals program, Perry’s prepares extra meals especially for ExtraFood to pick up and deliver to the Marin City Senior Center every month for their senior luncheons. They were also tremendous during last year’s Napa/Sonoma wildfire evacuations, generously making free meals for fire evacuees sheltering in Marin. We are so grateful for Perry’s generosity and dedication to helping us brighten the days of vulnerable residents in Southern Marin and beyond.

David R., Sr. & David R., Jr.

This father and son team sparks such joy in our hearts and in the hearts of the food donors and recipient organizations they encounter on their volunteer food trips. Since beginning with ExtraFood in December 2016, they have completed close to 90 food trips and recovered nearly 17,000 pounds of food. That’s an average of almost 200 pounds per food trip. Whew! Compassionate hearts and enough brawn to take on (very!) heavy loads without breaking a sweat; talk about a winning combination. We are truly grateful to have this amazing pair on our side.
