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.
An ExtraFood volunteer food runner since 2015, Peter has delivered over 53,000 pounds of food and he’s completed over 400 food trips! One of our “regular” volunteers, he “owns” weekly food trips that enable him to form a deeper connection with the food donors and recipients that he sees every week. When a recent schedule change prevented him from continuing with one of his long-time weekly food trips, he quickly picked up another trip that fit his schedule. Now that’s dedication! We, and the people that Peter encounters every week at Trader Joe’s in San Rafael, Nugget Markets in Tiburon, Bradley House, and St. Vincent de Paul are truly fortunate to work with Peter.
