Colorado Charitable Crop Donation Act
What is the Colorado Charitable Crop Donation Act?
Through the Colorado Charitable Crop Donation Act, local producers and farmers that donate food (like lettuce, corn, squash, meat, eggs, etc.) to food banks can receive a 25% tax credit based on wholesale value of the good donated.
The Colorado Charitable Crop Donation Act supports the state's agricultural industry, food banks, food pantries, communities, and Coloradans affected by hunger. The tax credit makes it easier for local food producers to donate more of their nutritious food. Gov. John Hickenlooper signed the Bill into law on May 30, 2014.
