VITA Volunteer Tax Prep - No tax experience necessary!
Food Bank For New York City
In the last 15 years, Food Bank’s FREE citywide tax assistance program has put more than $1 billion back into the pockets of low-income New Yorkers. While we are excited to resume this vital service this year, our top priority remains the health and safety of our volunteers and clients. To ensure all CDC guidelines are met, we plan to offer two models of tax filing services for Tax Season 2021: 1)CONTACTLESS IN-PERSON - working onsite alongside other volunteers to file returns dropped off in advance by clients; and 2)VIRTUAL - serving remotely from your personal computer to file returns submitted virtually by clients.
We invite all new and returning volunteers to attend this virtual kickoff event to learn more about the VITA program and meet with the Food Bank Tax Team and fellow volunteers who served in past years.

Founded in 1983, Food Bank For New York City operates the country's largest food bank, providing community food programs throughout the five boroughs of New York City with food, related products and support services. Today we distribute more than 51 million pounds of food every year to over 1,200 community-based programs that serve free meals to the City's hungry. These programs include soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, senior centers, low-income day care centers and other nonprofit programs that reach out to people in need of food. Operating out of our Bronx-based warehouse Food Bank For New York City collects, inspects, and distributes millions of pounds of food. Food Bank For New York City also provides support services to the City's emergency food providers by hosting nutrition and food safety workshops, networking sessions and other education initiatives. We use our central role in the City's anti-hunger effort to provide legislators, advocates and the media with information about hunger in the City so that they may formulate effective policy and heighten public awareness of this important issue. Food Bank For New York City is a certified member of the Second Harvest National Food Bank Network.
