Manufacturer & Retail Food Donations

If you are a food manufacturer, distributor, retailer, restaurant, farmer, or otherwise involved in the food industry, consider donating any food surpluses to the Foodbank. 


Local corporate food donors provide over 20% of food donations to the Foodbank. 

Donating food can be a very effective and cost-efficient solution to inventory surpluses, space and storage limitations, and waste disposal costs.  


Food donations are tax-deductible. Donors are protected from liability through the Ohio Good Samaritan Law.

The Foodbank can accept fresh produce, refrigerated items, frozen foods including meats, bakery items, personal care products and bulk packaged products, as well as dry canned goods.



The Foodbank can make arrangement for transportation of donated food.

Please consider donating the following:
Surplus inventory or production
Discontinued product
Products with cosmetic errors
Items that have production errors
Sample, promotional or seasonal items
Test products or new products
Products that are near code dates
Bulk and foodservice sized product
Unlabeled or mislabeled items
Products with damaged packaging

Contact Chuck Allen at (330) 777-7581 for information and specific guidelines regarding corporate food donations to the Foodbank.
