Food Recovery in Marin County: By picking up 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 global warming.
Community Spotlight: food-recipientsSparkPoint Marin
SparkPoint Marin, a United Way Bay Area project located in downtown San Rafael, is a financial education center that helps individuals and families “move from poverty to prosperity.” They do this by providing services such as debt-reduction coaching, budget-management coaching, job training, and support for finding housing. Each week they have an informal food pantry so that when their clients stop in for financial services they can leave with some extra groceries for the week. Many of the clients whom they serve live in the Canal area of San Rafael and this extra food helps with their weekly budgets. SparkPoint is an important community partner for ExtraFood as we work to support all aspects of of the solution to hunger in Marin. Check out their Impact Story too!
