Reduce food waste by 50% by the year 2030 (in relation to 2017 levels). By October 1, 2020, the department along with the Department of Agriculture and Department of Health must develop and adopt a state food waste reduction plan. 

Strategies should include: reduce food waste by residents and businesses, matching potentially wasted food with food banks and other distributors, and supporting productive uses of inedible food materials. Counties and cities will adopt a comprehensive solid waste management plan. Waste reduction strategies may include strategies to reduce wasted food and food waste.
