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.
Bennett House, in sunny Fairfax, is part of the Mercy Housing Group, a nationwide organization that creates stable, vibrant and healthy communities by providing affordable, service-enriched housing for families, seniors, and people with special needs. The senior residents’ enthusiasm and warmth makes Bennett House a favorite stop for our volunteer food runners. Residents at Bennett House look forward to the delicious food donations that arrive from Comforts, Taste Kitchen & Table, the Fairfax Farmers’ Market and College of Marin. Because more than 16,000 seniors in our county can’t make ends meet, seniors are among ExtraFood’s top priorities. We’re delighted to partner with Bennett House to support elders in our community.
