SNHD Regulations Governing the Sanitation of Food Establishments (Regulations) applies to all food stored in a permitted establishment. The Regulations do not specifically address food for donation. Food donated to a food bank or other permit exempt charitable organization is no longer under SNHD regulations when it leaves the permitted establishment.
