WRCOG Regional Food Rescue Program

Senate Bill 1383

Senate Bill 1383 (SB1383) is a California state law to decrease greenhouse emissions by reducing the amount of organic waste that ends up in landfills. A key part of SB 1383 aims to reduce unnecessary food waste and food insecurity, by recovering food that would otherwise go to landfill. By 2025, California businesses will recover approximately 20% of edible food by donating it to food recovery organizations.
