ExtraFood.org is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to addressing the issue of hunger and food waste in Marin County, California. The organization was founded in 2013 and has since grown to become a leading force in the fight against food insecurity and food waste.
ExtraFood.org provides a range of services to help reduce food waste and provide healthy meals to those in need.
- Food Rescue: One of the organization’s primary services is its Food Rescue program. Through this program, ExtraFood.org works with local farmers, grocery stores, and restaurants to collect excess food that would otherwise go to waste.
- Gleaning: Gleaning program allows volunteers to harvest surplus produce from local farms, and its school lunch program provides healthy meals to children who may not otherwise have access to nutritious food.
- Community Meals: Several businesses that provide food services, such as restaurants and caterers, do not have extra food to contribute. The Community Meals program offers those groups a straightforward but significant chance to help the hungry. Once a week, for example, Community Meals contributors could prepare a dish for 10 to 20 individuals, and the organization makes sure it reaches the most vulnerable.
- Emergency Response: The program makes extensive use of volunteer networks, safety-net partners, food partner ties, and technological systems to respond to more frequent disasters and emergencies promptly.
ExtraFood.org is a shining example of the power of community action and the importance of addressing social and environmental issues. Its innovative programs and services make a real difference in the lives of the most vulnerable and promote a more sustainable and equitable future for all.
