What is Food Recovery

What is food recovery? Food recovery means collecting edible food that would otherwise go to waste and redistributing it to feed people in need: the highest and best use for food that would otherwise go to waste. 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.
