the idea girl says

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.
