Food Recovery in Marin County: By rescuing 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.

We've delivered 2,707,544 pounds of food to 121 sites in Marin, keeping 222,586 pounds of methane from warming our planet & reaching 8,000 people every month.

A partner in our Community Meals program, Creekside prepares extra pizzas especially for ExtraFood to pick up and deliver to the Marin City Senior Center every month for their senior luncheons. Yum!

Morgan H.

He’s not one to seek the spotlight (so you won’t see his picture here), but Morgan has celebrity-like status at ExtraFood. He’s one of our original Food Recovery Heroes, a group of long-time, dedicated members of our phenomenal volunteer team that have volunteered for us for at least 3 years and have demonstrated extraordinary dependability, commitment, and passion for our mission to end hunger and wasted food in Marin. Steady as a rock, Morgan has “owned” a weekly food trip from Marin General Hospital to Homeward Bound’s New Beginning Center since the day he started volunteering with ExtraFood 5 years ago. How grateful we are for Morgan’s reliability, dedication, and passion for serving our community in need!
