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 community project is staffed totally by volunteers and confidentially managed.
