Join us for our next Naturally San Diego Webinar: SB 1383 which requires food distributors and manufacturers to donate surplus edible food.
A new California state law designed to address climate change requires certain businesses, including food manufacturers, to donate any surplus to food-recovery organizations — and Feeding San Diego is here to help you comply.
New legislation, SB 1383 requires food distributors and manufacturers to donate surplus edible food to food recovery organizations.
During this session, you will:
- Understand how Feeding San Diego works with local and national food donors to rescue food and provide it to people facing hunger - including SB 1383 and what you need to do in order to reach compliance
- Learn about the organization and establish understanding of Feeding San Diego's mission
- Receive tangible actions on the timeline of enforcement and how you can comply with SB 1383
Feeding San Diego is a non-profit organization on a mission to end hunger through food rescue. Established in 2007, Feeding San Diego is the leading hunger-relief and food rescue organization in San Diego County and the only Feeding America affiliate in the region. Last year, the organization provided more than 40.3 million meals every year to children, families, seniors, college students, military families, and veterans in partnership with a network of nearly 300 local charities, schools, faith communities, meal sites, and food pantries. More than 70 percent of the food provided to the community was rescued from local and national food donors. By diverting high-quality food from the landfill and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, Feeding San Diego protects people and the planet.
