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

Community Spotlight: food-recipientsConservation 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.
