As the COVID-19 pandemic progresses, the most intense food-related need in Marin has shifted from our healthcare facilities to our food insecure communities. Dine11 Marin, co-founded by SD parent Linley Kaye (mom to Beckett '28, Riley '22, and Hannah '20), has evolved their support model to focus on the Canal and Venetia Valley. "These two communities are where a significant portion of Marin's 47,700 residents at risk for food insecurity live and demand at food banks is well-beyond the supply of food," shares Linley. 100% of tax-deductible donations are invested in Marin restaurants, meals and meal gift certificates for Venetia Valley and Canal residents, and local healthcare heroes.
SD Junior Julian Olson is producing a video on Dine11 Marin for his ROSE project that includes an interview with SD Alum Louise Owens (also mom to Emily '19), who is one of Dine 11 Marin's volunteer drivers. SD parents Shyla and Doug Hendrickson (Jaden '24) are also volunteer drivers and Scott Smith’s restaurant, Firehouse Subs, is one of the endeavor's restaurant partners.
