Clallam County Prepared Food Rescue

Clallam County’s Food Rescue program is organized by partnering agencies and community meal programs to safely collect surplus edible food and puts it onto the plates of those in need and preventing good food from going into the landfill. We work closely with your business and our partnering agencies to get donated food transported safely and efficiently.

Why Donate and Rescue Food?  

  • Save on disposal costs & protect our environment
    • The most expensive way to manage surplus food is throwing it away.
    • Land-filling food waste has huge environmental impacts including the generation of greenhouse gases that contribute to our global climate change.
  • Provide fresh, nutritious foods for local residents
    • 1 in 6 Clallam County residents do not have a secure, consistent source of food.
  • Food donations may be tax deductible

Donate with Confidence

State and federal Good Samaritan laws protect you or your business from liability when you donate food that you believe is safe and edible.
