  • Tax Credit Update – Food Bank Donations Update on the tax credit for food bank donations from farmers: On Tuesday, December 13, 2016, the Food Bank Tax Credit for Farmers was officially launched with all regulations in place. For more detail, please click on this link Food_Bank_Tax_Credit_Guidelines. Follow this link to read one of the many news reports from the official launch at Feed Nova Scotia. As a reminder, this tax credit is retroactive to January 1, 2016. Many of our members already donate to the food bank on a regular basis, and have done so for many years; we encourage everyone to consider helping those who otherwise may not have enough to eat!
