Donating Food

The NSW Food Authority states that “Food that is donated or given away has certain requirements for safety and cleanliness. Organizations must ensure the food is safe to eat, and properly handled and stored.”

The Law on Donating Food

The Civil Liability Act 2002 was amended in 2005 so that businesses donating food to charitable organizations are protected from liability as long as certain safety conditions are met. The legislation stipulates protection for businesses if:

the food is donated in good faith for a charitable or benevolent purpose

the food is donated with the intention that the receiver of the food does not have to pay for the food

the food is safe to eat when it leaves the possession or control of the donor\the donor gives the charity any information it needs to ensure the ongoing safety of the food, with respect to both food handling and time limits for safe consumption.

‘Use-by’ and ‘Best Before’ Dates

Food that is marked with a ‘use-by’ date must be eaten or thrown away by that date.  Charities that receive food that will pass its use-by date before distribution are urged to throw the food away.

Food marked as ‘best before’ can be sold or distributed after the date has passed, provided the food is otherwise fit to eat.

Charities that Provide Food

The NSW Food Authority and NSW Government recognize the valuable work charities, organizations and volunteers do in providing or selling food for charitable purposes.

The special roles of charities and community groups has been recognized in food laws and certain exemptions apply to help make sure these organizations can continue their valuable work in the community.

What do Volunteers Need to Know?

A number of volunteers at 4Life Care & Training Ltd have undergone a ‘Food Handling & Safety’ course to ensure that the correct protocols and procedures are followed when handling the food you receive in your parcels.
