How Proposed State & Federal Tax Policies May Harm Your Work


These advocacy workshop are for food bank and food pantry operators in the Albuquerque and Santa Fe areas, as well as community leaders, and organizations focused on advocating for food access and food security.

Join us to learn:

  • What the policy threats are around the proposed reinstatement of a tax on food and the removal of nonprofit gross receipts tax exemptions.
  • What the dollar impacts are of those proposed policies on food banks and food pantries and the clients they serve.
  • What to do about it and ways to engage staff, community members, and stakeholders to advocate for your communities.

The workshops are:

  • Albuquerque: Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2018, 10am-noon, at Roadrunner Food Bank, 5840 Office Blvd. NE, Albuquerque. Download a flyer for this event here.
