Summary:
Donations of food to charitable organizations by certain businesses. Clarifies the term "retailers of food" to include grocery, convenience and other types of stores selling food and food products when donating food to food banks or charitable organizations for subsequent distribution to needy persons, thereby limiting their civil liability for such donations. The bill also makes clear that the charitable organizations (food banks and others) distributing the food will likewise be exempt from civil liability except for gross negligence or intentional acts that directly result in injury or death.
