BFF is a community program established in 2014 by the Cornwall Presbyterian Church, a non-profit organization. The BFF program does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religious beliefs, age, handicaps, gender or sexual orientation, nor does BFF require participation in religious services or religious training.

Mission of BFF:

 

To provide nourishing food for weekend meals to any school students in the Cornwall Central School District who receive Federal Free Lunch or Federal Reduced Lunch at their school during the school year.

 

We provide students with individual-sized food items to take home on Fridays in a backpack. The backpacks are returned on Mondays.

 

Funding for this program is through fundraising events, donations of food and money, sponsorships, and grants. This is a community project that is staffed totally by volunteers and confidentially managed.
