Edible Food Recovery Grant

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 22-23 intends to award a total of up to $100,000 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 of 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 12th, 2022 (8/12/2022) – September 16th, 2022 (9/16/2022)
