Kaiser Permanente San Rafael Medical Center
Kaiser donates their extra food to us 7 days a week, and the bulk of their donations are complete, microwaveable meals—like gold for some of our recipients whose primary need is for proteins or complete meals. Kaiser contributes to the health and wellness of our community in so many ways, and we’re grateful that they’re a longtime member of the ExtraFood community. http://bit.ly/1Lwkngu
Recognized this week in the Marin IJ for her immense and longtime service to ExtraFood, Ellen has completed more than 175 food trips, was a founding member of our teams at the Civic Center Farmers’ Markets, and helped plan our recent Volunteer Appreciation event. She’s always enthusiastic, funny, and dedicated—an amazing volunteer.
