Large food-service businesses, such as grocery stores and wholesale food vendors, are required to donate edible food to food banks, soup kitchens and other food recovery organizations.

In January 2024, this requirement will extend to a second tier of businesses, including hotels, restaurant facilities and healthcare facilities. Click here to learn more, or check out the City’s video on commercial business regulations.
