Donate Food

If you are involved in the food industry as a manufacturer, distributor, retailer, restaurant, grower, or in some other way, consider donating your food surpluses to Second Harvest.

The Food Bank is equipped to accept dry, refrigerated, or frozen product.  We can also accept non-food, personal care items such as shampoo and toothpaste. 


Food Industry members in our area currently donate the following items:

  • Surplus inventory or production
  • Discontinued product
  • Products with cosmetic errors
  • Items that have production errors
  • Sample, promotional, or seasonal items
  • Test or new products
  • Products that are near code dates
  • Bulk and foodservice sized product
  • Unlabeled or mislabeled items
  • Products with damaged packaging

Food donations are tax-deductible and can be a very cost-effective business solution.  Some benefits to donating your food surpluses include:

  • Significant tax savings – the tax deduction usually equals the sum of half the unrealized appreciation plus the taxpayer’s cost.
  • Savings on storage costs and dumping fees
  • Reducing the waste of good product
  • Building your public image by supporting hunger relief efforts in the community

All donors are protected from liability by the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act (PDF)


For information about what we can and can not accept, please check our Food Safety Guidelines for Donors (PDF)


Donations can be received at our warehouse Monday through Friday, between 7 AM and 2:30 PM.  Please call ahead to ensure the Food Bank has adequate storage space for the product.  Depending on Second Harvest’s delivery schedule, we can sometimes make arrangements to pick up your donation.  To schedule your donation, please contact Second Harvest at 610-434-0875, or email shfb-info@caclv.org.
