give more than food
Your donations of nutritious food could help your organization and our community by sharing food that would otherwise be thrown away; saving on waste expenses and reducing local landfills. Giving food through Feeding Colorado will also ensure accurate records and reporting of your donation as well as receiving convenient pick-up by or drop-off at your local Feeding Colorado Food Bank.

Here are answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.
• Sharing food that would otherwise be thrown away; saving on waste expenses and reducing local landfills.

Your donations will be safely transported, stored and distributed. Each Feeding Colorado food bank is equipped with refrigerated trucks, commercial refrigerators and freezers and temperature controlled warehouse space. The highest food safety standards are adhered to throughout the distribution process. All items are carefully sorted and if necessary, cleaned prior to distribution to our partner agencies. Partner agencies are also trained in safe food handling.
In 1989, the Colorado Legislature passed an amendment to the Good Samaritan Act, saying food donors will not be subject to criminal penalty or civil damage resulting from the condition of the food, unless injury is caused by “willful, wanton or reckless acts” by the donor. This includes canned or perishable food not readily marketable due to appearances, freshness, grade, surplus, or other considerations.
We can also accept safely stored and packaged prepared entrees, side dishes and desserts never served to patrons.
