Did you know?

 ·      Any food facility may donate food to a food bank or to another nonprofit charitable organization for distribution to persons free of charge. CRFC 114432

·      A permitted food facility that donates food would not be subject to civil or criminal liability or penalty for violation of any laws, regulations, or ordinances regulating the labeling or packaging of the donated product or, with respect to any other laws, regulations, or ordinances, for a violation occurring after the time of the donation.  CRFC 114433/CCC1714.25

 As a food facility donating food, California state law protects you!

Can you think of any reason not to donate your unused food now?

We can’t. 

Related legal references from California Health & Safety Code can be found on the Department website: www.rivcoeh.org.

 Food and Agriculture Code 58501-58509 gives the definition of a food bank, and further details regarding food banks, distribution and protection from liability.
