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've delivered 2,374,333 pounds of food to 115 sites in Marin, preventing 195,131 pounds of methane from warming our planet & reaching 8,000+ people every month.

Annie L.

Let’s hear it for our Volunteer of the Week, Annie L.! Annie has been a loyal ExtraFood volunteer food runner for 4 of our 4.5 years of operation. In that time she has completed nearly 90 food trips and recovered over 5,000 pounds of food. She takes on regular, weekly food trips and also jumps in to cover spontaneous food trips whenever she can. She currently owns our weekly trip from Barton’s Bagels to the San Francisco Theological Seminary. Students can’t learn when they’re hungry, so the students and their families truly appreciate her consistent deliveries of yummy bagels every Monday. We at ExtraFood appreciate her big heart and commitment to our mission to end food waste and hunger in Marin.
