Didn’t know about this one…… Tennessee Liability of Free Food Distributors law


Did you know that you are now legally protected to donate food through the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act and the Tennessee Liability of Free Food Distributors law.

During the 111th General Assembly food donor liability protections were expanded in the state of Tennessee. Under the new law a food donor of apparently wholesome food, including items bearing a past best-by date,, will not be held liable for any suits that arise from the conditions of the food, unless in the case of gross negligence, recklessness, or intentional conduct. Donors can also now donate food directly to an individual.
