Local donors are our number one source of food donations, providing more than 30% of the food distributed by the Foodbank.
The Foodbank works with local food donors to rescue surplus food and food that cannot be sold but is safe to eat, for distribution through our network of approximately 600 food pantries, hot meal sites, shelters and other hunger-relief programs.
Types of Food Donations
Retail & Food Industry
We work with food industry partners including grocery stores, retail stores, manufacturers, distributors, producers, farmers and trucking companies to collect surplus food.
Restaurants & Food Service
Restaurants, catering and food service companies can donate excess prepared food and food inventory.
Food & funds drives are a meaningful way to support families facing hunger.
If you have excess home-grown produce, consider donating it to a local hunger-relief program near you or to the Foodbank.
Your Donation is Protected by Law
Thanks to the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act, donors are protected from civil and criminal liability when making donations in good faith.
