Peninsula Food Runners is a volunteer organization dedicated to alleviating hunger in the San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. Our goal is to reduce food insecurities and food waste by diverting edible surplus food to those who are in need.

Peninsula Food Runners provides a free service to pick up excess perishable and prepared food from restaurants, caterers, bakeries, wholesalers, event planners, corporate cafeterias, farmer market vendors, and hotels. Our dedicated volunteers pick up food from these businesses and deliver directly to shelters, neighborhood feeding programs and 100% affordable housing. Presently Peninsula Food Runners is delivering 30,000 meals a week to families and individuals in need.

Unity Lutheran has participated as “runner”, “receipient” and “donor”.
