PARTNERING WITH RETAILERS/WHOLESALERS

  • IFDA and FMI are connecting foodservice distributors that have excess capacity with food retailers and wholesalers in need of assistance. Complete this form to participate. Note: We currently have an abundance of distributors in this program. Matches are made manually for requests from retailers based on geography and area of capacity. If a match is made, you will be notified via email. Email Annika Stensson with questions.

FOOD DONATIONS

  • IFDA members with excess food inventory and/or transportation capacity are encouraged to reach out to their local food banks. In addition, distributors that have retail-sized/labeled shelf-stable food can donate or sell to Feeding America for family disaster boxes. Email Tony Pupillo for more information.
