US and Canadian Food Donors: You are protected by the law!
The Good Samaritan Law
On October 1, 1996, President Clinton signed the Good Samaritan Food Donation Act to encourage the donation of food to non-profit organizations for distribution to needy individuals. This Act:
- Protects donors from civil and criminal liability should the product donated in good faith later cause harm to the needy recipient
- Standardizes donor liability exposure across all 50 states
- Sets a liability floor of “gross negligence” or intentional misconduct for persons who donate grocery products
- States that the provision of food close to recommended date of sale is, in and of itself, not grounds for finding gross negligence
Donation of Food Act (Canada, 1994)
The director, agent, employee or volunteer of a corporation that donates food or that distributes food is not personally liable for any damages resulting from injuries or death caused by the consumption of food unless:
- (a)The food was adulterated, rotten or otherwise unfit for human consumption; and
- (b)In donating or distributing the food, the director, agent, employee or volunteer:
- (i)Did not act in good faith
- (ii)Acted beyond the scope of his or her role; and
- (iii)Intended to injure or to cause the death of the recipient of the food or acted with reckless disregard for the safety of others
