Farmer Markets want to help! Do you? Volunteer with Peninsula Food Runners on Saturdays at the San Mateo Farmers Market located at the College of San Mateo, the Sunnyvale Farmers Market or Sundays at the Belmont Farmers Market. Peninsula Food Runners volunteers are asked to bring 5-6 smaller empty boxes and at 12:45pm, distribute them to vendors who wish to donate. Beginning at 1:00pm, vendors will give you unsold produce that you will deliver to nonprofits that serve those in need. Please visit www.peninsulafoodrunners.org to sign up and learn more about our nonprofit, started in 2013. You may also email support@peninsulafoodrunners.org for more information.

Mission Statement

The mission of Peninsula Food Runners is to alleviate food insecurity and reduce food waste in our communities. Everyday, volunteers at Peninsula Food Runners pick up and deliver a wide variety of wonderfully prepared food and groceries to community food to support organizations in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties.

Description

Established in 2013, this volunteer organization picks up excess food from businesses (restaurants, caterers, schools, corporate cafes bakeries, etc) and delivers it to recipients (food pantries, those that serve the homeless, shelters, transitional housing, 100% affordable housing, etc.) in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. Peninsula Food Runners relies on volunteers to be successful. Sign up on our website www.PeninsulaFoodRunners.org. You can volunteer for a regular weekly food run, or choose from a variety of open runs available 7 days a week on our automated scheduling system.
