Q: So you don’t give away spoiled food?

A: No. We inspect all the food we receive according to proper safe food handling procedures. Only edible food goes to the roughly 900 hunger-relief agencies who depend on us — and the clients who depend on them. While some of our food is distributed past its printed sell-by or expiration date, it’s important to know that these dates often refer to peak quality, not safety.
