ExtraFood, led by congregant Marv Zauderer, received the Achievement in Nonprofit Excellence award at the annual Heart of Marin awards, or as Marv put it, "the Oscars for Marin nonprofits." ExtraFood was chosen from a field of 15 nominees, culled by the Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership.
His acceptance speech is heartfelt, hopeful, and generous, and our congregation is honored to have gotten a shout-out during his time on the podium.
Congratulations to Marv and all the organizations nominated in this year's recognition ceremony. As Marv quoted in his speech, The opposite of poverty is not wealth—the opposite of poverty is justice."
