ExtraFood continues to rescue excess fresh food and deliver freshly-prepared meals for the people most in need in Marin County during this crisis.

Thank you for supporting our work to bring food to our community's most vulnerable people 365 days a year.

By rescuing excess fresh food from businesses, securing freshly-made meals, and immediately delivering the food to nonprofits serving Marin’s most vulnerable children, seniors, and families, we address the critical issues of hunger, wasted food & climate change.
