Extrafood.org Helps End Hunger and Waste In Marin

Composting is a great (and required) way for commerical organizations to do their part toward Marin's zero waste goals. However, there's another option we encourage you to consider first: donating fresh food to those in need.

Fortunately, we have an excellent organization called Extra Food here in Marin County dedicated to helping commercial organizations manage surplus food.

Extra Food will pick up excess fresh food from businesses and organizations and immediately deliver it to nonprofits serving Marin’s most vulnerable children, adults, and families. Currently they reach over 5,000 individuals per month and have delivered more than 1,156,619 pounds of food to 87 sites serving thousands of people in need.
