FOOD RECOVERY

The Alameda County Food Recovery Project is a food recovery and redistribution program managed in partnership with the Deputy Sheriff’s Activities League and ALL IN Alameda County.

ALL IN, StopWaste, and DSAL have devoted over a year of planning and relationship-building to the development of a sustainable model of food recovery that gets more fresh, healthy food onto the plates of food-insecure residents.

With funding from a CalRecycle food recovery grant awarded in 2018, our pilot program is now rescuing thousands of pounds of edible food per month from local school districts, farmers markets and other food waste producers. We deliver it to low-income residents in public housing projects, local church kitchens, and other organizations who can make use of the food. The program uses the Dig Deep Farms Food Hub as a repackaging and distribution center.
