Food Recovery Organizations & Services Reporting Form
New State law, SB 1383, and the Alameda County Organics Reduction and Recycling Ordinance went into effect January 1, 2022, including requirements for certain food generating businesses to donate edible food to a local food recovery organization or service and establish contracts or written agreements with them. Organizations receiving surplus edible food from donors must maintain documentation of the types and quantity of food (measured in pounds) recovered per month and the frequency of collections/deliveries from donors.
The first report from donations received from January 1, 2022, to June 30, 2022, is due on August 15, 2022.
