It's important to point out that this way of fighting food waste is still pretty new and there is no perfect legal framework that has rules and regulations for every possible scenario, so there is some tiny risk to it. But if people get food poisoning, then they would need to prove that it was because of the food that you saved to be able to come back at you - something that is rather hard to do... So our recommendation is to not take this too seriously, to get the support from some city officials and make sure that your operations run smoothly and that your Food-Share Points are clean. Then everything should be fine.
Researching and dealing with these legal complications is the toughest bit most of the time. Did you have fun doing it? Well we certainly didn't. So if you have any valuable insight concerning the legislation of your region it would be super nice of you to tell us! Then we can make it available to other potential foodsaving pioneers and save them the trouble you needed to go through. Join our forum and tell us about your project. You can also write us a mail in case the forum looks too confusing!
