We are proud to have helped facilitate the donation of a 1,400 square foot refrigeration unit (shown arriving by truck) to High Desert Second Chance Organization. The unit, donated through a CalRecycle Grant by Anaergia Inc.’s Rialto Bioenergy Facility will store 100,000 pounds of excess fresh produce and help feed 3,000 High Desert area families in need every week.
We applaud High Desert Second Chance’s commitment to food recovery (collecting edible food that would otherwise go to waste and redistributing it to feed people in need). Feeding hungry people through food recovery is the best use for surplus food and a vital way for California to conserve resources and reduce waste thrown in landfills.
