The City of Eureka will be leading an informational meeting in partnership with Abound Food Care that will provide everything you need to know to begin planning your SB1383 compliant food recovery program, such as:

  • The Food Donation Process
  • The Benefits of Participation in Food Donation

Where:

  • In Person: Eureka Council Chambers, 531 K Street, Eureka, CA 95501

—OR—

The background:

Almost one in four Californians don’t have enough to eat.

SB 1383 requires certain food businesses to donate the maximum amount of edible food they would otherwise dispose, to food recovery organizations. Mandated food donors can help their communities by working with local food banks, food pantries, and other food recovery organizations and services.

State law SB1383 went into effect January 1, 2022. The City of Eureka received a waiver for the law to instead go into effect on January 1, 2023.

What is SB1383?
