Questions and Answers

If there’s anything not covered here, please send an email with your questions to  donations@midwestfoodbank.org.

What types of products do you accept?

Chances are, if you have a product, we’re likely able to accept it. We accept unopened food and beverages, household items, cleaning products, paper products, hygiene items, and medical suppliers. We can take anywhere from one pallet to full semi-trailers full of shelf-stable, refrigerated, and/or frozen products.

What about the “Best By” date?

"Best by" dates are typically recommended use-by dates for best physical and sensory quality (more information here). We can accept several types of products close to, or even past, the "best by" date. Please contact us about the product you’re able to donate.

How do we get the product to you?

We come to you. Each Midwest Food Bank location has a fleet of trucks, including 53’ refrigerated trailers, that we’ll gladly send to your facility for picking up product. If delivery is preferred, we’ll gladly accept donated items at our warehouse. Each site has loading docks, pallet jacks, and forklifts for safe and efficient unloading.

What amount of product can you accept?

There’s no limit, really. From one pallet to multiple truckloads, we have the capacity to take in your donation, process (sort, repackage, relabel, etc.), and get it out to our non-profit agencies free of charge.

Is the donation tax-deductible?

We can provide a receipt for all donations, which can be used for tax deduction purposes.
