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.
