Comer and Grimes encourage taxpayers to donate to Farms to Food Banks Trust Fund

Commissioner of Agriculture James Comer, Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes and several  lawmakers went to the Capitol Rotunda Tuesday, January 14, rallying Kentucky taxpayers to “check the box” for hunger relief.

Starting this tax season, Kentucky state income taxpayers can donate a portion of their refund to the Farms to Food Banks Trust Fund. Administered by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture, the fund is intended to provide grants to nonprofits for the distribution of Kentucky-grown surplus agricultural commodities to low-income individuals. The fund was established in 2009 but has never received any funding from the Kentucky General Assembly.
