Laborers of the Harvest has a long history of meeting the needs of the community’s hungry families.

 

WE DISTRIBUTE THOUSANDS OF POUNDS OF FOOD EACH MONTH.

SB1383 LEGISLATION

In January 2021, California implemented new legislation [SB1383] that restricts the disposal of fresh rescued food from grocery stores from going onto landfills.


One extremely positive by-product of the legislation is that edible food—food that may be past its “sell-by" date but is still completely fine to eat—must be repurposed and redistributed.
With 1 in 5 Californians experiencing food insecurities, this legislation will help local food banks—like Laborers of the Harvest—to repurpose and redistribute tasty, nutritious food to hungry families right here in our community.
