Food Donation

Do you have excess food? We can schedule pick ups on a weekly basis or as needed. Pick ups are based on weight: minimum 25 lbs. to maximum 500 lbs.

We accept food prepared in commercial kitchens and produce from farms and gardens. Special attention is paid to ensure proper food-safe temps are maintained, and most food runs are "door to door" in 30 minutes or less.

We'll work with you to reduce the disposable waste, including returning containers.

Food donation is safe and the Federal Food Safety Law protects donors and donations.
