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.

Learn more about how you can volunteer with us or donate food.


The DNATL Community Food Council is a group of individual residents and agency representatives who are working together to build a local food system that provides healthy, culturally appropriate food to all families in Del Norte and Tribal Lands (DNATL).

We are housed within the Family Resource Center of the Redwoods and are supported by The California Endowment's Building Health Communities Initiative

Food Rescue Del Norte is funded by a Grant from the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) through California Climate Investments.
