School food donations

Clark County Public Health supports the safe recovery and donation of reusable food items in schools to address issues of waste and food insecurities. While helping to alleviate these concerns, donation of food has a potential risk of contamination and temperature abuse that can be minimized with appropriate control steps. Washington State Department of Health has created guidance for school programs that want to recover and provide food to needy students or donated food distributing organizations such as food banks, shelters or soup kitchens. Please email us if you are interested in starting a program at your school.
