FOR YOUR INFORMATION-GOOD SAMARITAN FOOD DONATION ACT AND INFORMATION ABOUT FOOD DATING
There is a law that protect donors of food who provide that food in good faith. Feeding America, the over-arching organization that provides hunger relief initiatives and information nationwide, has a great page of information on this law–the Good Samaritan Food Donation Act.
We often get questions about food dating as well. As a food pantry, we receive many donations that have a near date, or food frozen prior to the expiration date.
