The California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) frequently gets requests for food diversion funding opportunities. Although there are currently no discretionary funds available specifically for food waste diversion from CalRecycle, we will post available federal, state or regional loans, grants, or contracts as they become available, so please check back periodically.
