Waste Not OC

Enjoy Lunch with League and learn important information about Waste Not OC.  This amazing organization is a public-private partnership working to end hunger in Orange County by facilitating the donation of wholesome surplus food.  In 2017, Waste Not OC and their partners recovered 14,396,255 pounds of food.  Find out how the Waste Not Coalition feeds the need to end hunger in Orange County.
The League of Woman Voters can make an impact in our community by conveying the message that there should be no one suffering from food insecurity. This presentation will explore the ways to get involved in the community and how Waste Not OC and coalition partners are working to end food insecurity in Orange County. 

Do something personal to solve a local problem:

  • Bring canned or other shelf-stable items to donate.
  • Bring your checkbook, if you can.
  • Learn how the Waste Not OC Coalition is addressing the needs of the 300,000 + folks in the OC who experience food insecurity - and how you can help with this effort.

You will leave with a lighter heart and a grateful heart; this is a problem we can solve together. 


Speaker: Rachel Otair, Program Manager - Rachel Otair graduated from California State University, Fullerton with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology.

Rachel worked at the Katella Family Grill where she learned how to create relationships in a short period of time, stay organized and on task to accomplish goals, and handle food properly. With years of experience in the food service industry at the Katella Family Grill and the knowledge that she gained at the Anaheim Family YMCA, Waste Not OC was the perfect fit.
