KY Law Aims to Protect Grocery Stores from Food Donation Lawsuits

In Kentucky, a new law goes on the books next week aimed at shielding grocery stores from lawsuits over donated food for food banks.

The Louisville Courier Journal reports there hasn't been a lawsuit in Kentucky over someone getting sick from donated food, but the fear of a lawsuit has sent lots of food to the garbage.

The “Food Immunity Bill” protects groceries, farmers, and other entities who donate food from lawsuits as long as there was no intentional misconduct.

The bill goes into effect June 29.
