Donate Food

Food donations are vital to RIFA’s ability to provide meals to those in our community who struggle to afford food. Each year, we serve more than 49,000 meals in the Soup Kitchen, distribute more than 177,000 pounds of food to other local nonprofits through our Food Bank and provide weekend 11,909 food bags.

Donations are accepted at our warehouse Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.


Food Industry or Retail Donations

RIFA depends upon the generosity of the food and retail industry donations. We recover excess products from manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, supermarkets and others. As a Food Industry donor, you are protected from liability by the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act, passed by Congress in 1996.
