Food Industry Donations

More than 300 companies are saving money and eliminating waste by donating their surplus or imperfect, yet edible, products to the Food Bank.

Donations of items due to surplus production, discontinuation, imperfect, or underweight packaging and approaching expiration dates offer nutritious food to those in need while providing cost-savings in warehousing and disposal charges for food that otherwise would end up in a landfill. The Food Bank is equipped to accept donations of dry, refrigerated, and frozen products.

Food donations to the Food Bank are covered by national Good Samaritan laws. In addition, product donations generate tax benefits for participating companies and demonstrate good corporate citizenship. For information about becoming a Food Industry Partner, please contact Mary Crockett, at (207) 782-3554 ext. 1146, or Nancy Perry, at (207) 782-3554 ext. 1109,
