Founded in 2013, ExtraFood.org’s mission is to help end hunger and wasted food in Marin County, California. Our first step is our county-wide food recovery program: we pick up donations of excess fresh food from Marin businesses and schools and immediately deliver the food to nonprofit recipient partners – such as senior centers, homeless shelters, and after-school programs – serving Marin’s most vulnerable children, adults, and families. In 4 years, our staff and volunteer team have organized, recovered, and delivered 1,700,000 pounds of food – 1,300,000 meals – from 200+ food donors to 100 sites across Marin, reaching more than 6,000 people every month. ExtraFood is the most recent winner of CVNL’s Heart of Marin Achievement in Nonprofit Excellence award.
