*During the month of May 2020, the $50,000 $75,000 total match by the Foundation will be assigned across the three food banks and designations of agency credit for specific food pantries based on the timing of the donations. (On May 26 the Foundation board increased the match to $75,000, and by May 29, the food banks reported donations exceeding $75,000.) Your donations are charitable contributions to the food banks. Please contact the food banks with any questions you may have about your donation. Consult your personal advisor regarding your specific situation and when itemizing charitable contributions as tax deductions.
