Any organizations that utilize The Bill Emerson Act should reach out to BEI.

We are proud partners of Food Not Bombs which operates in over 1000 cities worldwide, and over 300 cities nationwide.  If your organization needs assistance in explaining the protections afforded under the Emerson Act to prospective participating food vendors, or any other basic questions explained, we would be happy to assist you in the same capacity free of charge. If you are an individual who wishes to start a new local program that utilizes the Emerson Act, we would be happy to assist you free of charge.  Please reach out to us. 

Here is a link to a research study conducted by the University of Arkansas, School of Law, which concludes that there has NEVER been a lawsuit stemming from a good faith donation throughout American history!
