Donate Food

Other Ways to Give Food



Donate your company products. If you are in the food service business, you can donate prepared and perishable food or household products for local people in need.

Plant a Row for the Hungry. When preparing your summer vegetable garden, you can take steps to fight hunger throughout the season. By planting an extra row of vegetables for the hungry and donating the harvest, you can bring fresh produce to neighbors who may not have such healthy options. 

Join our Retail Recovery Program. Local grocers and suppliers can join our war on food waste by contributing—rather than wasting—food that is still usable but no longer available for sale.

Contact our Food Sourcing & Quality Assurance Manager at 804.521.2500 or aandrews@feedmore.org to learn about the products or produce that our community needs and how you can best contribute.

Support our community partners. Outside of traditional food donations, there are many way to join the fight against hunger in our community. Check out the other ways you can help here.

The Good Samaritan Law


When you donate food to a nonprofit organization, you may want reassurance about your protections from liability. For example, did you know that cereal can be donated even if it is marked close-to-code date for retail sale?

Federal law encourages the donation of food and grocery products to nonprofit organizations for distribution to needy individuals. The Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act clarifies your protection from civil and criminal liability from products donated in good faith and standardizes these protections across all 50 states.

As a member of Feeding America’s food bank network, FeedMore continues to meet or exceed the same federal food-handling and safety regulations that govern the food and grocery industry.
