Dare to Care Food Bank relies on food donations from retailers, manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, processors, growers, trucking companies and community food drives, to help us distribute food to our community.
If you have collected food as part of a food drive, please visit our food drives page here.
We graciously accept food (fresh, dry, refrigerated and frozen) and non-food (household products, cleaning supplies, health products) items. These often include products that are safe for consumption, but are:
- Surplus items
- Discontinued items
- Mislabeled products
- Cosmetically damaged products
- Products nearing an expiration date
Benefits of Donating Food
- Receive tax benefits
- Reduce storage and disposal fees
- Eliminate waste
- Help end hunger in your hometown
The Federal Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act protects those who donate apparently wholesome food, in good faith, to an organization for distribution to people in need.
