Santa Barbara County Food Rescue : a CEC program

SBC Food Rescue is a collaborative food recovery program in Santa Barbara County with support from private, public, and nonprofit sectors. We help build relationships between donors with surplus food and charitable organizations to prevent produce and restaurant-quality prepared food from going to the landfill and instead direct it to those facing hunger throughout the County. Your participation contributes to building a resilient food rescue program to ensure we can quickly scale up in times of crisis.
