Haiti Earthquake Relief

On August 14, a devastating magnitude 7.2 earthquake hit the southern peninsula of Haiti. Two days later, tropical storm Grace dumped up to 15 inches of rain on the peninsula. With a death count in the thousands, and hundreds of thousands displaced and homeless, Haiti is crying out for help.

Local Grain Elevators Partner

Your local grain elevator is partnering with MFB to make it effortless for you to gift grain under the new 2018 tax law and secure the associated tax savings while supporting earthquake relief in the desperate country of Haiti. Sale and market risks associated with donated grain are immediately transferred. MFB is very thankful and appreciative of this partnership.

For Farmers:

Please consider making a pre-tax grain donation to Midwest Food Bank Haiti for Earthquake Relief. Simply indicate your desire to donate bushels of grain to MFB pre-tax and your elevator grain manager will facilitate the sale and transfer of money to Midwest Food Bank Haiti.

The need is great, but together we can continue to serve Haiti’s children and families. Because the situation is dire, we are hopeful that you will heed the call to help today.
