the idea girl says

I found that they have the 25,000 for this new community kitchen project but they need a few more things.

A ventilation for the kitchen (this can cost $20,000), the stove (a couple more thousand dollars) and other things.

So I’ll be looking at ways to advise them on fundraising ideas, and getting local companies to donate things we need for this community kitchen project in fort erie.

Where the guys and gals will teach our locals to cook yummy good cost effective meals on a limited budget.

Budgeting the monthly pay check – stretching your dollars and buying healthy foods for yourself or your family.

Not only do you learn to cook a meal, you get to sit down and eat it!

They have this program at the Salvation Army on Gilmore Rd in Fort Erie ontario.

If you take the local transit, just get off at the corner by the Fort Erie Public Library and the Avondale Store and walk a block up to the Salvation Army Building.

Rhonda was telling us she is going to reach 40,000 farmers by having a student named Chris write up an article for a Farmer’s Magazine for the local Niagara Region.

I wanted to suggest we do the same with The Old Farmer’s Almanac – to give farmer’s the choice.

Registered Growers (Farmers) you can get a tax credit up to 25% of the Retail Value of the foods you donate to the major food banks, or community kitchen programs.

it is based on Fair Market Value.

I asked where that sort of data can be found and Rhonda suggested I look into the Ontario Marketers Produce Association.

Okay we got the words wrong or I did..

it’s called OPMA the Ontario Produce Marketing Association.

I believe they are planning to go to the exhibit in Toronto this Friday (someone said they would be attending I forget who?)

here are the details on how to get a tax credit (save money) and be a helping hand to your local community

quote
An eligible person that donates agricultural products to eligible community food programs in Ontario, including food banks, may be able to claim a tax credit, in addition to the charitable donation tax credit.

The Local Food Act, 2013 introduced a new non-refundable income tax credit for farmers who donate agricultural products to eligible community food programs in Ontario, including food banks. The credit is worth 25 per cent of the fair market value of the agricultural products donated and can be claimed for donations made on or after January 1, 2014.

Community Food Centres Canada
Food Bank helps reduce the effects of Poverty, teaches you how to create a healthy food budget.
