Hospital Food Recovery Programs
Focus on Food Waste Problem While Helping the Needy
A number of Southern California hospitals are taking action to help solve America’s food waste problem by offering food recovery programs that assist the needy and impoverished.
In 2016, Kaiser Permanente launched its Southern California Food Redistribution Initiative. As of today, 12 of its 15 hospitals are actively participating. The program began in 1989 when Kaiser’s Riverside facility first partnered with a local charity to feed those in need.
