LATEST LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES

SENATE BILL (SB)1383

California's Short-Lived Climate Pollutant Reduction law aims to reduce organic waste disposal and global warming gasses. As of January 1st, 2022 Tier 1 food generators must donate the maximum amount of excess edible food they would otherwise dispose to food recovery organizations such as FARSB. 

Tier 1 Includes:

  • Wholesale food vendors

  • Food distributors

  • Food Service providers

  • Grocery stores or supermarkets

How to Help:

  • If your organization or business qualifies as a Commercial Edible Food Generator, FARSB can step in to ensure your surplus food donations can go directly to those in need and eliminate food waste.
