BluePrint’s tax preparation program is about to kick off.  Read more about it here.

August 28, 2018  A brief note to funders: BluePrint’s food justice operations no longer include the volunteers affiliated with the newly-formed “Food Justice Geneva NY.”  Solicitations made by that group are not part of our organization’s efforts nor covered by our 501c3 umbrella.  Our gleaning efforts remain, and we have continued to fulfill the vision of a year-round operation.  We know that every group has a role to play and we wish this new operation well.

 

Behind these doors….

A 10′ x 12′ cooler was constructed by BluePrint volunteers to keep gleaned produce fresh and ready for distribution to neighbors and the Little Free Farmstands on State and Middle Streets.  The City committed over $20,000 in taxpayer dollars to make this a year-round resource for community partners participating in the efforts for food security. We look forward to seeing that vision come to life in 2019!

A feature on our tax preparation program highlights the way in which we can provide assistance to filers who might otherwise be lured in by promises for low-fee/low-interest tax services that cost more than they should.
