Get Food

Programs

Hunger is a growing problem. Together, we can be part of the solution.

Rancho Cordova Food Locker is the center of a variety of programs and services to help our neighbors in need. Click each box below for a description of services currently available.

Food Recovery

Five days a week, volunteers and staff from Rancho Cordova Food Locker pick up food donations from local grocery stores. This program helps area businesses comply with SB 1383, a bill ensuring that healthy, nutritious food is distributed to those in need.

Every morning, Rancho Cordova Food Locker trucks can be seen at grocery stores across Rancho Cordova picking up healthy, nutritious food to support SB 1383 and our food distribution efforts. Current partners include Bel Air, Raleys, Safeway, Walmart, Sprouts, Grocery Outlet and Costco.

From Fiscal Year 21/22 to 22/23, Rancho Cordova Food Locker nearly doubled its Grocery Partners to nine local stores. The Grocery Recovery program is on track to redirect and redistribute 2.5 million pounds of edible food to our neighbors in need.

In California alone, nearly 6 million tons of food are thrown away annually. To reduce food waste and help address food insecurity, SB 1383 seeks to recover 20 percent of the healthy, edible food that would otherwise end up in landfills.

To become a Grocery Recovery partner, or for more information on how donating food to Rancho Cordova Food Locker will help your business comply with SB 1383, please contact Carrie Johnson at carrie@ranchocordovafoodlocker.org.

Food Recovery efforts like those of Rancho Cordova Food Locker help fight hunger and environmental concerns like global warming.
