What happens after pick-up?
SB 1383 is establishing a viable path for Edible Food Recovery Programs to thrive. The program aims to minimize food waste and combat food insecurity by redirecting surplus food, which remains safe for consumption, to food banks, soup kitchens, and other organizations dedicated to food recovery. This initiative aims to provide nourishment to individuals in California who are in need.
Businesses are to play a major role for the food recovery programs.
In this case certain large businesses (grocery stores, large institutions, etc.) and large public events participate in edible food recovery, though any business can donate surplus edible food. Edible food means food intended for people to eat, including food not sold because of: Appearance, Age, Freshness, Grade, Size, and Surplus. Edible food includes but is not limited to: Prepared foods, Packaged foods and Produce.
The State of California has implemented a phased approach to require specific types of businesses to donate edible food. The timeline for compliance is as follows:
- Effective from January 1, 2022: Supermarkets, food service providers/distributors, wholesale food vendors, and grocery stores with a facility size of 10,000 square feet or more.
- Effective from January 1, 2024: Restaurants with 250 or more seats, hotels with on-site food facilities, large venues, state agency cafeterias, and healthcare facilities with 100 or more beds or the facility size of 5,000 square feet or more.
Commercial edible food generators are expected to fulfill the following responsibilities:
- Recover the maximum amount of edible food that would otherwise be disposed
- Maintain records of edible food recovered, specifically:
- Keep record of the name, address and contact information of the service or organization that collects its edible food for donation.
- Keep record of the type of food that will be collected or self-hauled/back-hauled
- Keep record of the established frequency that food will be collected or self-hauled/back-hauled
- Keep record of the amount of food donated (in pounds)
In order to support the City’s endeavors in monitoring progress towards achieving SB 1383 requirements, it is mandatory for food recovery services and organizations to submit reports to the City, detailing the amount of food they handle through their initiatives.
Currently, there are several organizations operating within or around the City that comply with this requirement. These organizations are listed below:
