Action Alert: House to Vote on Crop Donation Bill
Fresh food is critical to a healthy diet. We all need it. Without fresh food, our health, quality of life, and productivity could be compromised. Oregon Food Bank wants to increase the amount of fresh food distributed to Oregonians facing hunger, especially for vulnerable populations like seniors and children.
Many farmers and producers want to donate fresh food but the cost of harvesting, transportation and storage can make a donation cost prohibitive. A tax credit can help fill that gap. It can make the difference for a farmer choosing between donating more and donating at all. We need your help in passing a bill to do just that.
