Can I donate meat to a food pantry?

Yes, meat donations can be made to a food pantry if the meat was processed in a USDA or MDA inspected facility and carries the mark of inspection by the appropriate agency. These donations are only allowed if the meat has not been adulterated or mislabeled. Meat that was processed in a facility designated as "custom-exempt" and labeled "not for retail sale"� cannot be accepted by food pantries.
