About ExtraFood

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 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 food waste in Marin County. Our first step is our county-wide food recovery program: we rescue excess fresh food from Marin’s businesses (such as grocery stores, farmers’ markets and farms), and immediately deliver the food to safety-net partners (such as senior housing centers, homeless shelters and food pantries), who serve Marin’s most vulnerable children, older adults and families.
