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.
ExtraFood is seeking a visionary leader who is excited to build on a strong foundation and lead the organization into the future as its next Executive Director. This is a unique opportunity to helm a well-respected and established organization working at the intersection of food justice and the climate crisis to bring about real and lasting systems change.
The Executive Director serves as the primary spokesperson for ExtraFood and will maintain strong relationships with key business partners, funders, and influencers. In addition, this knowledgeable thought leader will have a seat at the table at the County, State, and national level on issues related to hunger, food waste, and the environment. This is an exciting opportunity to lead an organization dedicated to the transformational change of food systems in order to eradicate hunger, increase equitable access to healthy food, and reduce the impact of food waste on the climate crisis.
