    If I lived up there I would donate my own food that I bought, however, I have worked for 4 different food companies and to drop by and give you overages is the same as stealing from the company, its just like me taking it home for my own use, I work for Sysco and thats a no no, good luck to you though.

    If I were you I would contact the food warehouses in your area and ask them if you can come pick up their damaged goods, all food companies just throw that stuff, dairy, produce, ect., in the dumpster, most of it is good, if a case of milk has a jug leaking, they usually pitch the whole case cuz they cant sell singles or splits of milk, gallon jugs I mean, might be worth a try.
