Food Pantry Tax

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon recently signed Senate Bill 20 into law which reinstates 1 point 25 million dollars in tax credits.

The law will enable Second Harvest Community Food Bank in St. Joseph, along with other agencies, to benefit from Food Pantry Tax Credits. Chief Development Officer of Second Harvest, Rachel Graves, says this is good news for Second Harvest as well as anyone making a donation to the food pantry from January 1st, 2013 through December 31st, 2019.

Rachel Graves says the tax credit renewal came at the perfect time for the annual Food Justice Movement which is currently underway at Second Harvest, as any donations made before May 30 will count towards the movement's totals. She feels the tax credit will interest more community members who are considering making a donation.
