San Gabriel Valley Regional Food Recovery Program


The passage of Senate Bill 1383 (SB 1383) in September 2016 imposed statewide targets to reduce the disposal of organic waste by 75 percent by January 1,2025 (based on 2014 levels) and recover at least 20 percent of currently disposed edible food for human consumption by 2025. The California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) finalized and adopted SB 1383 guidelines in November 2020 with the approval of the Office of Administrative Law.

As a result, the SGVCOG launched the San Gabriel Valley Regional Food Recovery Program on September 29, 2021 to support member agencies to comply with SB 1383's food recovery mandates and significantly reduce food waste in the San Gabriel Valley. Known as one of the largest regional food recovery programs in California, this program includes assessing commercial edible food waste generators, identifying and fostering partnerships with local food recovery organizations, implementing outreach and education endeavors, and developing and implementing inspection protocols.
