ExtraFood's mission is to end hunger and wasted food in the Bay Area, California. 

We recover excess fresh food from businesses, schools, and gardens and immediately deliver it to people facing food insecurity.

Our Food Recovery Programs

The Problems

35% of all food is
wasted

Wasted food
is a main cause of the
climate crisis

1 in 5 people in Marin and 1 in 4 people in San Francisco are food-insecure

The Solution: Food Recovery

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

ExtraFood rescues excess fresh food from any Bay Area businessschool, or garden 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

Support ExtraFood With Confidence

"I (Susan) come from a family of 8 kids. We never had leftovers or even seconds, but we had enough. We grew up knowing that wasting food was just wrong. To know that there are people in my community who suffer from hunger hurts my heart. ExtraFood’s mission of collecting perfectly good excess food and redirecting it to folks with food insecurity just aligns with my values. Plus, it is ecologically sound. My Italian grandmother would be proud of me for supporting this organization."
