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 the climate crisis.

LIFT provides a wide variety of services throughout the county and beyond, including food programs, health education, nutrition education, physical activity, and chronic disease screenings. We’ve been supporting their Novato HealthHub and Workplace Wellness programs for quite some time. This week LIFT opens a HealthHub in the Canal, one of our highest-priority areas, and we’ll be sending food donations their way to help in the start-up. Nonprofits in Marin feed many people onsite, but many of the hungry in our community won’t go to nonprofits’ offices for a number of reasons, such as transportation, embarrassment, and awareness. So to end hunger in Marin, it’s critically important for ExtraFood.org to also partner with organizations that are taking food *to* Marin’s most vulnerable residents where they are. And that’s a centerpiece of LIFT’s strategy to serve underserved communities. Check ‘em out! www.lift-levantate.org
