Food rescue del norte:
A project of the Dnatl community food council
Our mission is to build a vibrant local food system that provides
affordable, healthy food to all DNATL families.
In Del Norte county, every year nearly 4 million pounds of food goes into the landfill where it wastes uneaten and rots while emitting greenhouse gasses.
This program will develop a food waste management plan, educate about how to reduce food waste, as well as rescue, glean, preserve, and redistribute food.
Community Food Council received a grant from CalRecyle to help us rescue food that might get thrown away.
Our goal is prevent 400,000 lbs of edible food from going to the landfill by April 2021 and get food into the hands of those who need it most.
