Lying awake last night from all of the excitement around the Jefferson Award story on KPIX/Channel 5 and KCBS 740 radio, I was thinking about the wonderful markets that have set up systems in their stores to make sure that the food that is close to date, too ripe or packages that are a little squashed are put in our hands for us to take directly to so many people throughout Marin County.

Without the stores who donate food to us every day, we would clearly not be able to do what we do.

This is also a call to those stores who are still throwing food away. Let us help you reduce your dumpster bill and get that food directly out to people who can use it. We hear from more and more apartment complexes and individuals who could really use your food. Let’s have this be a win/win all the way around.
