Laws on Food Donations
Each year around the holidays, many Utah residents donate food to organizations which collect food for needy families. Donations are generally accepted at food banks, local businesses and schools, or even online, as in the case of the Virtual Food Drive sponsored by the Community Action Food Bank (serving Utah, Wasatch, and Summit counties).
Laws about charitable food donations can be found at Title 4, Chapter 34 of the Utah Code. These laws authorize the donation and inspection of donated food, limit the liability of donors acting in good faith for injuries resulting from donated food, and prohibit the resale of donated food items.
