Salam, @Rauf perhaps you would like to change your current question to " Is it permissible to eat food from non-Muslims? "

Salam alaikun, it is not aram to collect food from non muslim, we will classified it as a gift from them, and gift from a non-muslim is halal for us,as long as the givers source of income is halal. Allah knows best.

As long as the food is halal it does not matter as most of us have to buy food from non - muslims anyway. I recall hadith about the Prophet PBUH borrowing dates from a Jew but I can't quote the source for this - sorry! Maybe these people giving you food are interested in Islam. Maybe this good deed they are doing will help their hearts to be open to learn more.
