Peninsula Food Runners pick up generously donated excess food and takes it directly to the shelters in their community. A typical run take an hour to complete.

Come and meet the donors who donate wonderful food to feed the hungry, and in the process reduce food insecurities, and many secondary effects from food waste (rodents, household gas, landfill waste, pollutions etc.)

Meet recipients who will greet you and are so ever thankful that they don't have to worry about their next meal.

Peninsula Food Runners donors and recipients are in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties (covering cities from South San Francisco to San Jose).

You can volunteer for a regular weekly food run or share a biweekly with another individual. You can also sign up for a one time run.

You can volunteer as an individual, with family, co-workers or friends.

Thank you and we look forward to having you join us.
