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.
Community Spotlight: food-donorsSafeway Community Markets
In addition to their regular, thrice-weekly grocery donations of fresh and packaged food, this week we benefitted from an incredible donation of over 6,000 lbs (that’s 3 tons!) of shelf-stable food collected through Safeway Community Markets’ “Bag Summer Hunger” program. Through the month of June, their customers purchased pre-loaded bags of non-perishable foods for $10 each that resulted in the 6,000+ lb donation. Our recipient partners were thrilled to receive this food, which was distributed among many vulnerable children, families, and individuals throughout Marin.
