Dedicated to Alleviating Hunger and Reducing Food Waste.


“There is enough food for everyone. We just have to make sure it gets to those in need.”

— Maria Yap, FOUNDER


Our Impact

Since our inception, Peninsula Food Runners has delivered more than 1.5 million lbs of food to needy people. In any given week, we deliver an average of 30,000 pounds of food to recipient organizations.  We have over 200 organizations that participate in donating food in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.  And the important fact is that every recipient we service can expect food on a weekly basis.
