Food Rescuers drive to a Bay Area business or school and pick up surplus food, then deliver it to a local nonprofit where it is distributed to those in need. That’s it! An hour of your time will make an impact in your community as you help keep excess nutritious food out of the landfills, put food on people’s plates, and help the planet.
"After retiring I was looking for something meaningful to do that enabled me to give back to my community. I discovered the ExtraFood program and thought what a brilliant idea that they can rescue thousands of pounds of food to give to the needy and I have been a volunteer ever since. I appreciate what they are doing and am happy to be part of this wonderful organization."
