Lini B.

In just over a year, Lini has traversed Marin County nearly 50 times on behalf of ExtraFood, delivering over 4,000 lbs of food to seniors, families and children in need. It’s not unusual to see Lini traveling all the way out to West Marin deliver carloads of donated food. We’re so grateful to her for dedicating so many clicks on the odometer to help feed the hungry in our county.
