Wife says yes.  So, we have a badge.  Go forth my children and proceed to laminate and spread spare food throughout the world with no questions asked, anyone who wants food gets food.

It's amazing at how fast people want to start setting rules.  "Does that person REALLY need free food?"  Have to stomp that out quickly like a lit ash on the rug.

Could I trouble you for one more version?  I've been asked to remove the white box, the name will be printed in bold over the image.

Thanks.

Thank you oh grand poobah of the digital realm.  Hopefully I'll quit bothering you now.  Actually bedtime, have a day job to do between food bank duties.

By the way, here's the finished badge.  It's on Google but you shouldn't have to log in or anything to see it.  I've had some people say they can only download images, can't view them on the web.  Others have no problem.  ??
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3z7JJjmkXckOUYxRG9UQm9lZTA/edit?usp=sharing

Anyway, if anyone would like one of these, I've decided to print and laminate for a nominal fee.  $5 postage paid for one badge, lanyard NOT included but the hole punched (unless you ask for no hole). 

Since we handle a lot of food and the badges get abused, I included a piece of stainless wire in ours to reinforce the hole.  This makes the badge a bit lumpier and not as slick looking, but it will last longer.  Let me know if you want that.

The image is the same, front and back.

Contact me for more details.

My only concern/suggestion would be to blur out the Ralph's logo in the background, since it's a real store. If you're a small operation it's a long shot, but you may get into some sort of hot water with their legal department.

We used the new badges today, nobody noticed (as expected).  I pointed it out to the head guy and he thought it was humorous.  I reminded him that I'm an actual minister, but I don't think he's one who considers us real.

Technically you must have the blessing of a registered charitable food bank, everything you pick up has to go to the charity for distribution.  Any food past the sell by or open containers is trash.  Only employees of the food bank may hand out food from an inspected facility.

Non-technically, you do what you can and it's better to ask forgiveness later than trying to get permission up front.  But, a letter from a recognized brick and mortar church in your area would probably help open the doors.

Oh, also, take everything they give you even if the oranges are green and fuzzy.  You can NOT pick and choose at the store, that's for paying customers, sort later.  Be prepared to deal with large quantities of food (10-15 shopping carts full at some stores), some needs refrigeration or freezing.  Home Depot sells some nice chest freezers cheap.  Thank them when you talk to them.  Don't miss a pickup schedule, have people ready to fill in if you can't make it.  You may get calls when it's not your day to pick up if the other guys didn't show up, be ready to have someone get stuff any day of the week.  After a while you'll find they might save more stuff for you because you show up on time and are pleasant to deal with.  One store gives us lots of meats (we got three tote bins full tonight) because they don't like the people who pick up on Saturday morning.
