The Alameda County Food Recovery Project is a food recovery and redistribution program to support the county in its compliance with SB1383. In the first two years of operation, DSAL recovered and redistributed over 2 million pounds of food that would have otherwise been wasted.
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.
