The Backpacks For Food program is run entirely by volunteers. There are no paid positions. All donations are used to purchase food, backpacks and the supplies needed to sustain the program.

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.
