The Road to Edible Food Recovery and Reducing Organics Disposal (WasteExpo 2022)

June 6, 2022

California has passed one of the most aggressive edible food recovery policies in the world.  To meet the legislative requirements, municipalities across the state are actively developing food recovery programs. This session will look at several examples of municipalities in Los Angeles County and the steps they are taking. The examples will include edible food capacity planning, identifying food generators and recovery organizations, outreach to edible food generators, gathering needed data, setting up programs and training for successful recovery, matching food recovery organizations to donors, and tracking the amount of food recovered. Additionally, this session will highlight practices to recover non-edible food through organics collection and recycling programs when food recovery is not an option.
