Our Impact In Marin

Since we launched our free service in 2013, ExtraFood.org has made a significant impact in Marin County, from Point Reyes Station to McNear's Beach to Novato to Marin City, and everywhere in between:

We are helping solve the problem of hunger in Marin by helping Marin's nonprofit food programs be more effective in our shared work to get more healthy food to more people who are struggling with hunger. We are addressing inequities and need by redistributing some of the highest-quality food in the world.

And, we are acting on the environmental aspect of our mission by reducing the massive impact of food waste on climate change:

In sum, ExtraFood is solving hunger differently:

Because if they have the food they need, children can learn, seniors can age in place with dignity, and adults can find jobs to lift themselves out of poverty.

We do all of this with a highly efficient organization: in 2020, 91% of our expenditures were devoted to program delivery.
