FOOD RESCUE

WE FILL THE GAP BETWEEN THOSE WHO HAVE FOOD AND THOSE WHO NEED IT

We rescue excess fresh food from any North Bay business, school, or garden and immediately deliver the food to nonprofit distribution partners serving our community’s most vulnerable children, seniors, and families

300 food donors, 151 nonprofit distribution partners, and 750 volunteers thus far, all working together towards the same goals of ending hunger and food waste in the North Bay

Types of food we rescue:

Prepared food, fresh produce, dairy products, eggs, meat, packaged goods, baked goods

Who we rescue food from:

Grocery stores, restaurants, schools, farmers’ markets, farms, caterers/events, bakeries, corporations, congregations, civic organizations, hospitals, backyards, and community gardens

Who we donate to:

Any nonprofit serving vulnerable people in the North Bay, such as after-school programs, senior housing centers, homeless shelters, food pantries, treatment programs

"Next Generation Scholars so appreciates the partnership with ExtraFood as the food provided is a true lifeline to our students and their families. Not having to worry about hunger allows our students to concentrate on their academic pursuits. We cannot thank you enough!"
