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, food waste, and global warming.

We've delivered more than 1,401,245 pounds of food to 96 sites serving thousands and we've prevented 114,856 pounds of methane from warming our planet.

Wise Sons Bagelry

A long-time San Francisco institution, Wise Sons recently opened its first brick-and-mortar store outside of the city in the Marin Country Market in Larkspur. We are proud to welcome them as a brand new ExtraFood donor offering Jewish comfort food made from the freshest California ingredients. Their breakfast and lunch sandwiches are especially popular. We thank Wise Sons for the two donations they made their very first week working with ExtraFood.

Mary W.

An ExtraFood volunteer since 2014, Mary has completed over food 200 trips. In addition, she helped us tremendously this Monday (when the Napa/Sonoma fires were raging) by filling all the open trips for the day. She also made herself available all day to help deliver whatever she could to any fire evacuation shelters in need. That kind of attitude makes everyone’s life better. We are so grateful to Mary!
