General Food Distribution
Food distributors and manufacturers donate products that do not meet precise industry standards due to labeling errors, overruns, discontinuance or quality control mistakes. Second Harvest Food Bank collects, stores and distributes these products to partner agencies.
Food Industry Donors and Growers Wishing to Donate Food
Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida can accept donations of dry, shelf-stable, refrigerated and frozen food items, fresh produce, personal care and cleaning products; mislabeled and unlabeled products; discontinued or test-marketed items and bulk products. While deliveries of donated goods are always appreciated, our staff is happy to talk with you about picking up your donation.
The national Good Samaritan Laws cover donations of food and other items to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. Additionally, your company can realize tax benefits from the food you donate.
Donating food can help your company reduce warehouse storage, dumping costs, and waste, while providing much-needed items for low-income families and others in need. Learn more at: http://www.givefoodcfl.org/
If your company wishes to donate contact: Kirsten Langan, Director of Food Strategy & Sourcing at 407.514.1029 or via email: KLangan@feedhopenow.org
