As well as the food that is generously donated by numerous businesses we need more:
- fresh fruit and veggies, milk (or money for),
- plastic containers for freezing food for emergency meals
If you are moving house or going on holiday bring in the stuff from your fridge! If you have fruit trees that are drooping with fruit let us pick them! If your cows need milking bring them in and we’ll milk them for you! What ever is excess in your larder will be very much welcomed in ours. And it will all help provide meals for the needy in Byron.
Is It Safe To Donate?
Members of the community who donate food to charities are protected from civil liability.
Food donors in New South Wales are protected from Civil Liability under Part 8A of the Civil Liability Act 2002 (NSW).
In general, this Act protects food donors from civil liability where food is donated for a charitable purpose with the intention that the consumer will not have to pay for the food, and where the food was safe to consume at the time of donation.
Full provision of the civil liability Amendment (Food Donations) Act 2005 (NSW), which introduced Part 8A into the Civil Liability Act 2002 (NSW) are available from Liberation Larder Inc.
