Community Spotlight: food-donorsEl Huarache Loco
Located at Larkspur Landing (Marin Country Mart), El Huarache Loco is a wonderful success story. Their owner, Veronica, started out as a caterer, moved on to open a San Francisco Farmers Market stand and then, because she had built a loyal following, opened the restaurant in Marin. A huarache is a Mexico City speciality…a corn masa cake in the shape of a sandal which can be filled with just about anything. El Huarache Loco is part of ExtraFood’s Planned Giving program, in which restaurants make a little extra food to be donated to one of our recipient organizations.
