We are able to collect surplus food from a non-commercial entity only if it's prepared and stored in a commercial kitchen. If this food is prepared at a private residence we are unable to collect this surplus food. We recommend checking out Olio if you are looking to donate from a private residence.
For example, some of our nonprofit partners prepare individual meals that they distribute amongst their recipients. Sometimes they’ll have more meals than they can serve. Given they are using a commercial kitchen for their food preparation, we can accept these as donations to redistribute to our other nonprofit partners.
