join california Climate Change

A significant component of the Short Lived Climate Pollutant Reduction state regulation SB 1383 is a 20% increase in whole food donations. Large food generating businesses such as markets over 10,000 feet are now required to donate extra edible food from their operations to local food recovery organizations, such as food banks or pantries; and to record donations for the city and partner Second Harvest Food Bank. This effort prevents food waste, decreases greenhouse gas emissions from food decomposing in landfills, and feeds families. 

From January 1st, 2022 to June 30th, 2022, Second Harvest Food Bank in Watsonville recovered 3,015,402 pounds of donated food throughout the county and distributed to local people in need. Some of the large markets in Watsonville that contribute generously are: Watsonville Staff of Life, Nob Hill Foods, Safeway, Grocery Outlet, and Target. Second Harvest Food Bank and the city are supporting additional large local markets to increase donations. Even if your market is not over 10,000 feet and required to donate, your market or business can still give back by donating to local food recovery organizations such as Loaves and Fishes and the Salvation Army.


Un componente significativo de la regulación estatal SB 1383 de Reducción de Contaminantes Climáticos de Vida Corta es un aumento del 20% en las donaciones de alimentos integrales. Las grandes empresas generadoras de alimentos, como los mercados de más de 10,000 pies, ahora deben donar alimentos comestibles adicionales de sus operaciones a organizaciones locales de recuperación de alimentos, como bancos de alimentos o despensas; y registrar las donaciones para la ciudad y el banco de alimentos Second Harvest Food Bank. Este esfuerzo evita el desperdicio de alimentos, reduce las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero de los alimentos que se descomponen en los vertederos y alimenta a las familias.

Desde el 1 de enero de 2022 hasta el 30 de junio de 2022, Second Harvest Food Bank en Watsonville recuperó 3,015,402 libras de alimentos donados en todo el condado y los distribuyó a las personas locales necesitadas. Algunos de los grandes mercados en Watsonville que contribuyen generosamente son: Watsonville Staff of Life, Nob Hill Foods, Safeway, Grocery Outlet y Target. Second Harvest Food Bank y la ciudad están apoyando grandes mercados locales adicionales para aumentar las donaciones. Incluso si su mercado no supera los 10,000 pies y requiere una donación, su mercado o negocio aún puede retribuir donando a organizaciones locales de recuperación de alimentos como Loaves and Fishes y Salvation Army.
