NONPROFITS PROVIDE VITAL SERVICES

The Multicultural Center of Marin (MCM) is continuing its essential services during this health and economic crisis. MCM’s weekly food distribution is providing food for over 500 families every week, up from about 100 per week before the crisis, including home delivery for the most vulnerable recipients. MCM’s weekly radio show in Spanish, “Cuerpo Corazon Comunidad,” is providing information about wellness and needed services. To learn more or to support MCM’s community assistance, visit MulticulturalMarin.org.

ExtraFood.org launched a project with Insalata’s Restaurant in San Anselmo to give 6,000 freshly-made meals to food-insecure people sheltering place in Marin. ExtraFood.org founding board member and Insalata’s owner Heidi Krahling is deploying a small crew to the kitchen to cook and package the food. For two months, Insalata’s will produce 150 meals per day, five days a week, for ExtraFood.org to deliver to individuals and families in need.
