Mini of Marin
Our Food Donor of the Week is Mini of Marin. Every year, their general manager, Joe Thomer, gifts his employees with a turkey for their Thanksgiving feasts. This week we were delighted to pick up 12 extra turkeys after they had been distributed to the employees. Our volunteer, Mary, picked up the turkeys and delivered 6 to Center Point and 6 to SparkPoint, in plenty of time for Thanksgiving. These two organizations were thrilled, to say the least!

Craig has been volunteering for ExtraFood for only 2 months but has already made quite an impact, completing 23 food trips so far! He initially joined us as a Sunday Farmers’ Market volunteer but quickly branched out from there. He has helped out in a pinch many times, jumping in on a number of spontaneous food trips. He still loves his work at the Farmers’ Market, however, helping out at at the Thursday, Friday and Sunday markets. Craig brings a calm and generous spirit and we’re delighted to have him on our team.
