Thirty-five percent of all food is wasted in the U.S. And, food waste creates an enormous environmental problem: if global food waste were a country, it would rank third in green house gas emissions after the U.S and China. Yet 1 in 5 people in Marin County worry about where their next meal will come from.

ExtraFood’s mission is to help end hunger and wasted food in Marin. Through our county-wide food recovery program, we rescue excess fresh food from Marin’s businesses and schools and immediately deliver the food to recipient partners – such as senior housing centers, homeless shelters & after-school programs – serving Marin’s most vulnerable children, seniors and families. Through our Community Meals program, we work with restaurants and caterers and use their excess capacity to make meals for people in need.

In 8 years, ExtraFood’s staff and volunteers have organized, rescued, and delivered over 5 million pounds of food from 275 organizations to 141 sites throughout the county. ExtraFood, winner of the 2017 Heart of Marin Achievement in Nonprofit Excellence Award, reaches more than 8,000 people with high-quality food. 

ExtraFood is solving hunger differently, leading a movement to transform Marin’s food system – from wasting food to donating it – and increasing equitable access to healthy, fresh food. We are committed to our values, to each other, and to making a difference in our community each day. ExtraFood is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
