Becoming a Keep Austin Fed Donor is an easy and free way to help the community. We welcome, and greatly appreciate, donations of wholesome and healthy surplus food from your restaurant, bakery, grocery store, event venue, or catering facility.
As long as it complies with governing health codes and Safe Food Handling Practices, Keep Austin Fed will pick up, at no cost to you, any type and quantity of food or beverage and deliver it to a charitable organization that helps people experiencing food insecurity. We cannot accept home cooked meals, prepared meals older than 4 days, meals that have been plated, or food from a self-serve buffet.
You are protected from liability by the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act (PUBLIC LAW 104-210—OCT. 1, 1996 110 STAT 3011 Public Law 104-210. 104th Congress). You can be proud your hard work will not go to waste and stays out of the landfill, contributing to a cleaner environment.
We welcome any questions and concerns and look forward to working with you!
