Donation Guidelines

Waste Not Want Not has strict food safety guidelines for the food that we accept.  We gratefully accept semi-perishable (baked items, citrus and other gleaned produce) and non-perishable items if still suitable for human consumption.  We also accept perishable and prepared foods maintained in safe temperature zones and chilled or frozen before being donated.  (Prepared food must be provided by a regulated or licensed food business, such as a restaurant, caterer, wholesaler or bakery and must exclude foods previously served to the public.)

If you have any questions about a potential food donation, please call our dispatcher hotline at 904.505.5894.
