    Food waste prevention program

    Los Angeles Conservation Corps has operated a recycling program for more than 30 years to reduce consumer waste that goes to landfill. This past year, the Corps launched a program to divert edible food surplus from landfill and put healthy food on the tables of people in need, as well as sending inedible food waste to composting or renewable energy generation. The Corps seeks support for the training and employment of at-risk young adults from disadvantaged communities to help with collection.
