How to obtain or donate food

Food donations should be shelf-stable, and shelter staff should take usual food-related infection prevention precautions. Access to sufficient amounts of safe and nutritious food is key to sustaining life and promoting good health. Food safety, nutrition and food security are closely linked. Unsafe food creates a vicious cycle of disease and malnutrition, particularly affecting infants, young children, elderly and the sick. Ensure strict hygiene and strengthen health screening for those handling food. Check with your local government or community for specific resources. Key words: food insecurety, basic needs, food shelf, food pantry
