Ontario Association of Food Banks (OAFB) in the News October 2009

For the second consecutive day in Question Period, NDP Finance Critic Michael Prue (Beaches-East York) called for the McGuinty government to implement a tax credit for farmers who donate surplus produce to Ontario’s food banks.

Yesterday, the Finance Minister was disinterested in Prue’s question. Today, Prue asked the Premier and received a much more positive response.
