Edible Food Recovery Grant Opportunity – Apply by October 31, 2023

ReGen Monterey and Salinas Valley Recycles are excited to announce the renewal of their Edible Food Recovery Grant Program.

The SB 1383 Edible Food Recovery Program – Grant Funding Opportunity, FY 23-24 intends to award a total of up to $90,000 to non-profit organizations, businesses, or public entities that collect, generate, and distribute food to those in need within the County of Monterey.

This funding opportunity is intended to support California Senate Bill 1383 – Short Lived Climate Pollutants, which mandates a 75% reduction in landfilled organic waste and a minimum of 20% of currently disposed food recovered for human consumption. Ultimately, we aim to reduce the amount of edible food that ends up in landfills while redirecting that food for the good of our local communities. Our agencies cannot wait to see the good generated from this funding, and we look forward to reading through the community’s submissions.

Application Period: August, 2023 – October 31, 2023 (10/31/2023)
