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 2,012,090 pounds of food to 107 sites serving thousands and we've kept 165,367 pounds of methane from warming our planet.
