Backpack Program

 

COVID-19 Update:

This service has been expanded to help meet the new and changing needs of students in the Cuba-Rushford, Belfast, and Friendship school districts. If you would like to donate to this program, please contact dgaeta@cubaculturalcenter.org or call us at 585-209-0052

Our partnership with Foodlink as well as other local funding organizations allow us to distribute nutritious, kid-friendly food to hungry children for consumption over the weekend.¬† We currently supply packs of food to registered children in the Cuba-Rushford, Belfast, and Friendship school systems. These BackPacks are pre-packed by Foodlink. As COVID-19 changed everyone’s world, this BackPack program has expanded to help fill the gap when students are attending school virtually or a hybrid model.¬†
