Donors range from grocery stores, restaurants, caterers, food distributors, farms, schools and even other nonprofits.
Surplus food is perfectly good food that is unsold and often approaching the end of its useful life.
The Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Act, passed in 1996, protects everyone in the food donation cycle, except in cases of gross negligence.
The recently passed Food Donation Improvement Act builds upon the Bill Emerson GSA by clarifying and broadening liability protections for retailers to donate surplus food.
