Donor Protections & Tax Incentives

An existing tax provision allows qualified C Corporation taxpayers (retailers, restaurants, and food manufacturers) to take a charitable tax deduction for donations of fit and wholesome food to nonprofit charitable organizations that serve people struggling with food insecurity.

Food donors are protected under the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act, to encourage companies and donors to donate healthy food that would otherwise go to waste.

Good Samaritan Food Act

This act protects you from liability when you donate wholesome food
to a nonprofit organization in good faith. 

Food Donation Tax Incentives

The PATH Act made several improvements to the tax incentives allowable for food donation to nonprofits. This includes increasing the allowable percentage of tax benefits, and making it easier for small and mid-size businesses to donate food, including farmers, retailers, restaurants, and food manufacturers.
