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-recipientsMartinelli House
Martinelli House provides 66 units of affordable, quality housing in San Rafael to seniors age 62+ and people with disabilities. They’re part of the Mercy Housing Group, a nationwide organization which has participated in the development, preservation and/or financing of more than 45,800 affordable homes. Each week the delightful Mary Mendoza, Martinelli’s resident services manager, greets our volunteers as she receives our deliveries from M.H. Bread & Butter Bakery and Andronico’s. So many seniors in our expensive county live on a low, fixed income and can be faced with deciding between buying food and medication. We’re delighted to be working with Martinelli House to support elders in our community.
