ExtraFood.org’s mission is to help end hunger and waste in Marin County, California, where over 40,000 people do not have a secure food supply. In their countywide food recovery program, they pick up excess fresh food from any business – such as grocery stores, farmers’ markets and restaurants – and immediately deliver the food to nonprofits that serve Marin’s most vulnerable children, adults and families. In two years, ExtraFood delivered more than 400,000 pounds of food – over 300,000 meals – to 64 sites serving thousands of low-income residents across the county.
