Food Recovery in Marin County: By picking up 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 more than 1,924,922 pounds of food to 106 sites serving thousands and we've kept 158,171 pounds of methane from warming our planet.

Community Spotlight

Flour Craft, San Anselmo

Flour Craft is a locally owned, artisan, gluten-free bakery serving bread, pastries, and healthy plant-based meals. One of our very first food donors, Flour Craft has been donating delicious treats to ExtraFood from their San Anselmo location every week since our first month of operation in December 2013. Amazing! They also recently opened a new shop in Mill Valley. Their wonderful food donations support the food pantries at the Marin Community Clinics Health Hub in Novato and the San Geronimo Presbyterian Church.

Susan F.

A member of our all-important West Marin crew, Susan has been delivering multiple food donations to the San Geronimo Presbyterian Church food pantry every week for nearly 2 years. We are truly grateful for Susan’s dedication to helping bring food to people in the West Marin “food desert,” where residents lack sufficient access to healthy, fresh, affordable food. To date, she has delivered over 14,000 lbs of food to support the West Marin community. Incredible!
