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.

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!
