I have a concern about the sending leftover food home with my client after a catering job. I usually prepare 25% more food than is requested by the client in case there are "surprise" guest. I usually take any leftover back with me and then donate it to either a church or to help feed the homeless. Knowing that food needs to maintain a certain temperature to keep it from becoming contaminated, it concerns to leave the unprotected food with the client because I'm not sure how long it will set out before it gets refrigerated or eaten. Should I be concerned? If they do take it and then get sick from the food am I liable?
