We’re raising money for a Mobile Food Pantry!

We know that there are families in need of food that we’re not reaching, and we’re going to do something about it. We are counting on you to help us take our emergency food program on the road. With this new program, we will bring a truck fully stocked with groceries to families who cannot get to our warehouse. Will you make a donation to help us launch our mobile food program?  It would mean so much to us and the people we serve.

You can make a donation HERE.

IRA Required Minimum Distribution (RMD)

If you are 70.5 years old and subject to RMD, please consider making a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) to Food for Others. This will allow you to avoid the ordinary income taxes you would be required to pay on your RMD. Here are some things to keep in mind:

·         Contributions can only come from IRAs, inactive SIMPLE IRAs, inactive SEP IRAs, or inherited IRAs, not pre-tax employer plans;

·         Contributions must be paid directly from the IRA Custodian to Food for Others;

·         The contribution can be part or all of the RMD;

·         The donation can’t exceed $100,000 per tax year for an individual or $200,000 for a married couple filing jointly ($100,000 from each person’s IRA); and

·         The funds must come out of your IRA by December 31 to count toward that year’s RMD.

If you have questions about donations, please contact Alison Padget at apadget@foodforothers.org.
