Unfortunately, due to food handling and safety regulations, we are unable to accept home-made food items, partially used or opened packages, or items not commercially packaged. Perishable items that we can accept are fruit and vegetables that come direct from a local farmer or grocery store and have a shelf life of over a week. Prepared food from events cannot be distributed through the CFP. Please do not leave perishable items at the drop sites without notifying us in advance. If you are unsure whether your donation is suitable for the CFP, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.
