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.
Community Spotlight: food-recipientsSparkPoint Marin
It will take many people and organizations working together to end hunger and waste in Marin by 2025, and so ExtraFood is always looking for partners who provide complementary services to our vulnerable neighbors. We’re delighted to welcome SparkPoint, a United Way project located in downtown San Rafael, to the ExtraFood family. SparkPoint is a financial education center that helps individuals and families “move from poverty to prosperity.” They do this by providing services such as debt-reduction coaching, budget-management coaching, job training, and support for finding housing. Such valuable services in our community! Thank you to our friends at Bank of Marin for referring us to SparkPoint; more information here: http://sparkpointcenters.org
