In November 2014, Colony Energy Partners and Fresno Metro Ministry (Metro) were awarded a $2.9 million grant from the State of California’s CalRecycle Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF) to build an anaerobic digester in Tulare and to expand Metro’s Food to Share program. Through this partnership, food that cannot be recovered and donated to disadvantaged communities will be sent to the anaerobic digester.

“What was already a compelling project became even more potent with the addition of… Fresno Metro Ministry,” notes a CalRecycle case study on this partnership. “Part of the scoring criteria for CalRecyle’s Organics Grant Program is to provide benefits to disadvantaged communities, and in a highly competitive grant solicitation, the food rescue proposal pushed Colony Energy Partners to the top.”
