DONATE > DONATE FOOD & ITEMS
Over 100 million pounds of edible food are thrown away each year by large retailers, wholesalers, restaurants, and farmers. Stop & Shop knows this and that’s why they are so generous in supporting St. John’s Food for the Poor Program.
When giving food and goods, the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act of 1996, protects donors “from civil and criminal liability should the product donated in good faith later cause harm to the recipient,” except for cases of “gross negligence or intentional misconduct.”
Donate Non-Food Items
Food and non-food items are always in critical need at the center, including toiletries for the homeless, plastic bags for take-home food and box lunches for the working poor, and pet food.
If you are interested in sponsoring a "Fill-a-Bag" drive to help guests of the St. John’s food for the Poor Program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
