Key drop delivery and rejected items

When food is received at a convenient time, such as between lunch and dinner or during the morning. The food must be from an approved source, placed in the correct storage facility, protected from contamination, and its presentation looks correct.

If you reject an item you must inform the person making the delivery why. After giving the food back you must receive a credit slip or signed adjustment before they leave. Some rejected foods that are rejected can still be used, such as dirty cans or packaging.
