Donate Your Product to Help Feed Hungry People in Your Community – In this difficult economy, more and more people are struggling to put food on the table. There are hungry people in every community in this state – 1 in 7 people in Illinois don’t have access to adequate, nutritious food. Our network of food banks can help you get your donations to families in need.
Food donations are tax deductible and not just for C corporations. Under the Food Provision in the Pension Act of 2006 (P.L. 109-280, Section 1202) tax benefits were extended to small businesses, farmers and ranchers.
We will pick up the produce – Within 24 hours of your call, arrangements will be made for pick-up. When you call, your food bank will need to know:
• Product type or types, if mixed load• Quantity (1 pallet minimum), location and how the product is packed
• Approximate amount of waste, as a %, that can be expected
