Good Samaritan laws that protect donors, nonprofit food banks and meal programs from liability for the foods and other essentials they donate and provide are now uniform throughout the country. For many years, Washington state has given donors and nonprofit food providers great protection from liability, and The Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act of 1996 makes it even easier to donate. You and your company can donate without fear of liability in the unlikely event something happens to the donated product once it leaves your control.
Food Lifeline is prepared to handle your donation safely and efficiently under the state and federal Good Samaritan laws. In fact, our Product Recovery Center was designed and operates in compliance with standards set by the National Food Processors Association. Our prepared and perishable food rescue programs also meet federal food-handling and safety regulations.
