One of the surprising conclusions was that FOOD WASTE is a huge problem.
Good news is that California and several other states already have legislation addressing this:
In October 2014 Governor Brown signed AB 1826 Chesbro (Chapter 727, Statutes of 2014), requiring businesses to recycle their organic waste on and after April 1, 2016, depending on the amount of waste they generate per week.
AB 1219 Oct 2017 expands liability protections related to organic wastes.
We’ve surveyed local food stores and food banks and done some investigation of school lunches. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in working with us.
