How Restaurants and Caterers Can Get Involved
Rather than tossing unused food from your restaurant or event, consider donating it to our organization! We partner with local food recovery organizations like We Don’t Waste to reclaim and redistribute quality, nutritious food to those in need. These donations come from sports venues, caterers, food distributors, restaurants, and other organizations who want to put their excess food to good use.
Good Samaritan Food Donation Act
Millions of pounds of food and groceries go to waste each year. To encourage companies and organizations to donate healthy food that would otherwise go to waste, they are protected from criminal and civil liability under the Good Samaritan Food Donation Act.
On October 1, 1996, President Clinton signed this act to encourage donation of food and grocery products to nonprofit organizations for distribution to individuals in need. This law:
- Protects you from liability when you donate to a non-profit organization
- Protects you from civil and criminal liability should the product donated in good faith later cause harm to the recipient
- Standardizes donor liability exposure
- Sets a floor of “gross negligence” or intentional misconduct for persons who donate grocery products
