California food waste law proves burdensome in small towns as fuel costs rise

A California law requiring grocery stores and restaurants to donate leftover food has been difficult for local food banks and small towns to implement due to rising fuel costs and uncertainty over who pays for food recovery. The effort to reduce methane emissions from discarded food sent to landfills while feeding hungry people has been slow to take off, illustrating the difficulty of reducing food waste on a large scale. The California law, which took effect in January, requires national retailers such as Amazon.com Inc and Kroger, as well as small grocery stores and convenience stores, to donate unsold food, redirecting anything edible from landfills and composting anything that is not edible.
