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 climate change.

We've delivered 2,822,973 pounds of food to 121 sites in Marin, keeping 232,074 pounds of methane from warming our planet & reaching 8,000 people every month.

Community Spotlight

Marin Coffee Roasters

More than just a place to get coffee, Marin Coffee Roasters is a community hub. Locals flock to the specialty coffee shop for the delicious coffee, fresh food, good company, and live music. The generous staff at the San Anselmo location provides tasty baked goods donations 7 days a week. Our volunteers love bringing their treats to sweeten the days of recipient partners across Marin.

Dennis O.

We’re so glad Dennis noticed the little ExtraFood table at the big CVNL volunteer fair last fall. Thanks to that chance encounter we got ourselves a super volunteer. In just 5 months, Dennis has completed over 65 food trips recovering over a ton of food. Just last week alone he covered 7 food trips. Whew! We’re so grateful that good fortune sent Dennis our way!

Conservation Corps North Bay

A 37-year-old organization, Conservation Corps North Bay (CCNB) has one simple goal: to engage and empower youth by teaching them to cultivate and preserve the environment. Most of the youth that comprise their corps enter the program without a high school diploma. Some have been incarcerated. Almost all are from extremely low-income households. CCNB provides them with the opportunity to complete high school, access counseling, receive scholarships, work on environmental projects, learn transferable work skills, and take home a paycheck. We’re proud to work with CCNB to support their hard-working youth with energy-providing food necessary to achieve their goals.
