Food Recovery Organizations

SB 1383, “California’s Short-Lived Climate Pollutant Reduction Strategy” requires that local jurisdictions establish food recovery programs and strengthen food recovery networks. One aspect of strengthening food recovery networks is that jurisdictions must host the information of food recovery organizations on their website, so that commercial edible food generators can identify which organizations could potentially accept their food. Listed below are food recovery organizations in our community.
