What is donating right?

The act of donating is one of goodwill and with the intention to help others. However, not all the items Food from the Heart receives seem to fit this description, such as expired products and junk food.

While Food from the Heart appreciates all donations, some are more appropriate and/or easily utilised. The best donations are those that require minimum processing, well-portioned, safe to consume and are nutritionally-appropriate for our beneficiaries, many of whom have ailments.

Donate Right is an awareness initiative that provides insight into the types of food that are donated, what goes on in a food charity behind the scenes, and the considerations that should be made before donating a food item. It helps those who mean well and want to give well to do so, and is especially suitable as a lead-up to food donation drives.
