Napa County Seeking Qualified Firm for SB 1383 Edible Food Recovery Capacity Study
This is a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) only and does not constitute a commitment, implied or
otherwise, that Napa County will take procurement action in this matter. Further, Napa County is not
responsible for any cost incurred in furnishing this information.
Napa County is seeking a qualified consultant with a comprehensive understanding of SB 1383
regulatory requirements for edible food recovery, a demonstrated ability to obtain information from
knowledgeable sources at Tier 1 and Tier 2 commercial edible food waste generators, and the ability to
obtain information from food recovery organizations and services in Napa County.
The edible food recovery capacity study is expected to include the unincorporated portion of Napa
County, each of the five (5) incorporated cities in Napa County, and food recovery organizations and
services operating in and serving Napa County. Capacity projections and recommendations should be
made for the period covering January 1, 2022 – December 31, 2024.
Background
One of the statewide goals set by SB 1383 is for 20% of edible food currently being landfilled to be
recovered for human consumption. SB 1383 requires each jurisdiction in California to implement an
edible food recovery program, which will:
Feed hungry people
Create new green collar jobs
Strengthen relationships between food donors and food recovery organizations
Help create sustainable funding for food recovery organizations
Build more resilient communities
Food Recovery organizations matter more than ever to communities facing:
High rates of food insecurity
A public health pandemic
High rates of unemployment
Climate change impacts
Services Requested
1. Identify Tier 1 and Tier 2 edible food generators in unincorporated Napa County, City of
American Canyon, City of Napa, Town of Yountville, City of St Helena and City of Calistoga.
Provide the list broken down by jurisdiction. Napa County has begun to identify Tier 1 and Tier 2
edible food generators countywide. This list can be provided to the consultant awarded this
agreement.
2. Identify which Tier 1 and Tier 2 commercial edible food generators already have a contract or
written agreement with a food recovery service or organization.
3. Identify which Tier 1 and Tier 2 commercial edible food generators may meet the provisions of
Section 18991.3, which specifies that a commercial edible food generator may demonstrate
“extraordinary circumstances beyond its control”, making compliance impracticable.
4. Estimate the amount of edible food (in pounds) currently being landfilled or composted at Tier 1
and Tier 2 commercial edible food generators that could otherwise be recovered for human
consumption. Food should be categorized as perishable or temperature sensitive and non-
perishable shelf stable foods.
5. Identify food recovery services and food recovery organizations operating in and serving Napa
County.
6. Identify current capacity at food recovery services and food recovery organizations operating in
and serving Napa County. Identify if there are plans for or the possibility of expanded capacity at
any existing food recovery service or organization.
7. Identify the amount of new or expanded capacity necessary for each jurisdiction, if any, at food
recovery organizations and food recovery services intended to recover the edible food
estimated to be disposed by the commercial edible food generators identified.
8. If it is identified that new or expanded capacity is needed to recover the amount of edible food
that would need to be recovered, draft an implementation schedule that includes timelines and
milestones for planning efforts to access additional or new capacity.
Submission
