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 have delivered more than 2,215,413 pounds of food to 114 sites across Marin and we have prevented 182,084 pounds of methane from warming our planet.

Larry S.

Currently a member of ExtraFood’s famous 2nd Sunday Farmers Market team, Larry has been doing some serious heavy lifting for ExtraFood – to the tune of 3,500 pounds! – since 2015. He’s an integral part of the 2nd Sunday team and has only taken one day off from volunteering since joining the team two years ago. What’s more, this former math teacher calculates the weights of all the beautiful produce and fresh baked goods donations his team receives – in his head! Brains, brawn ... Larry’s the whole package. We’re so fortunate to have him on our side!
