Food Donations:
Under Florida's Good Samaritan Law, all individuals and corporations who donate food are protected from liability.

Jack Davis Florida Restaurant Lending a Helping Hand Act.
The bill (B276) expands Florida's Good Samaritan food-donation law to provide a lawsuit exemption for restaurants that donate 
leftovers to charities and nonprofit groups. Federal Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act On October 1, 1996, then-President Clinton signed this act to encourage donation of food and grocery products to non-profit organizations for distribution to needy individuals.

The Federal Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act.
Florida Restaurant Lending a Helping Hand Act.

This law makes it easier for you to donate by:
•Protecting you from liability when you donate to a non-profit organization
•Protecting you from civil and criminal liability should the product donated in good faith later cause harm to the needy recipient
•Standardizing donor liability exposure. You or your legal counsel no longer has to investigate liability laws in 50 states
•Setting a floor of "gross negligence" or intentional misconduct for persons who donate grocery products.
According to the new 
law, gross negligence is defined as voluntary and conscious conduct by a person with knowledge (at the time of conduct) that the conducts is likely to be harmful to the health or well-being of another person.

How you benefit from donating:

I. Solidary Foundation Statement of Faith:

There is one and only one living and true God.

Faith is of enlightenment and intelligence.

Moreover, the cause of education is co-ordinate with the causes of missions and general benevolence, and should receive along with these the liberal support of that which is deemed good and right under the exacting scrutiny of proper faith and values.
The people have a spiritual debtorship to the whole world, a trusteeship, and a binding stewardship in their possessions. They are therefore under obligation to serve by example
with their time, talents, and material possessions; and should recognize all these as entrusted to them for helping others. According to the Scriptures, the people should contribute of their means cheerfully, regularly, systematically, proportionately, and liberally for the advancement of that which is right.

The people should, as occasion requires, organize such associations and conventions as may best secure cooperation for the advancement of the Church. Such organizations have no authority over one another. They are strictly voluntary and advisory bodies designed to elicit, combine, and direct the energies of our people in the most effective manner. Members should cooperate with one another in carrying forward the missionary, educational, and benevolent ministries for the extension of the ministry and all it represents.

We should oppose racism, every form of greed, selfishness, and vice, and all forms of sexual immorality. We should work to provide for the orphaned, the needy, the abused, the aged, the helpless, and the sick. Every member should seek to bring industry, government, and society as a whole under the sway of the principles of righteousness, truth, and brotherly love. In order to promote these ends We shall be ready to work with all men of good will in any good cause, always being careful to act in the spirit of love without compromise.

Church and state should be separate. The state owes to every church protection and full freedom in the pursuit of its spiritual ends. In providing for such freedom no ecclesiastical group or denomination should be favored by the state more than others. Civil government being ordained of God, it is our duty to render loyal obedience thereto in all things not contrary to the revealed will of God. The state has no right to impose penalties for religious opinions of any kind. The state has no right to impose taxes for the support of any form of religion.

We are all obligated to do that which is right in whatever form that may take.
