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.
Bennett House is a residence in Fairfax for low-income seniors and is part of Mercy Housing, a national, non-profit affordable-housing organization. Mercy Housing believes that affordable housing and supportive programs help to transform neighborhoods and improve peoples’ lives; Bennett House so clearly shows Mercy Housing translating that belief into action. Every Friday, the residents at Bennett House look forward to the delicious food donations that arrive from Comforts, Andronico’s and College of Marin. Because up to 12,000 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.
