Descrição

Organization

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 greenhouse gas emissions after the U.S and China. Yet more than 20% of people in the Bay Area worry about where their next meal will come from.

ExtraFood’s mission is to help end hunger and wasted food in the Bay Area. Through our point-to-point food recovery program, our staff drivers and food rescue volunteers pick up excess fresh food from Bay Area businesses, schools, hospitals, farmers markets, and farms, and immediately deliver it to our food distribution partners – such as senior housing centers, homeless shelters, transitional housing sites, and after-school programs  – serving the Bay Area’s most vulnerable children, seniors and families. Through our Gleaning and SOUPer Food Kitchen programs our volunteers also turn excess produce and other ingredients into nutritious soups and meals, nourishing our most vulnerable neighbors throughout the year.

In 10 years, ExtraFood’s staff and volunteers have organized, rescued, and delivered 8.7 million pounds of food – 7.25 million meals – from 635 organizations to 340 food distribution sites throughout the region. ExtraFood, Marin and Sonoma County’s Nonprofit of the Year in 2022, reaches more than 25,000 people with high-quality food every week. 

ExtraFood is solving hunger differently: leading a movement to transform the Bay Area’s food system – from wasting food to donating it – and creating permanent change to our community food system. 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.
