The Cambridge Day reports on how Food For Free has helped rescue and distribute 1.6 million pounds of surplus food since 1981.

The Good Samaritan Food Donation Act provides liability protection to businesses that donate surplus food. Businesses that donate food are also eligible for tax incentives.
