It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


Throughout Marin -- wherever convenient for youSan Rafael, CA 94915


At ExtraFood.org, our volunteers pick up excess fresh food from Marin County, California businesses -- such as grocery stores, restaurants, caterers, and farmer's markets -- and immediately deliver it to Marin nonprofits that serve our community's most vulnerable children, adults, and families. In 4 years our staff and 500 volunteers have organized, recovered and delivered 1.7M pounds of food from 200+ donors to 100 sites across Marin. We reach more than 6,000 people every month with deliveries of nutritious, fresh food.

You can sign up for pickups/deliveries ("food trips") that are most convenient for you -- a trip will take at most 30-60 minutes of your time. You can "own" regular food trips, sign up for trips online on an ad-hoc basis, or both. Join us! For more info, visit www.ExtraFood.org. Help serve the 49,000 residents of Marin who worry about their next meal, and help reduce the millions of pounds of methane-generating food waste that enter Marin's landfills each year.
