While the schools do provide children with free and reduced-cost breakfast and lunch, some children don't have enough to eat over the weekend and come to school on monday hungry. The Seneca Falls BackPack Program was created to fill this need. We help families feed their children during weekends & extended breaks from school.
Seneca Falls BackPack Program works in conjunction with FOODLINK of New York to provide kid-friendly, nutritious foods to school age children.
A sample of typical foods, actual contents will vary.
Summer Food Programs
There are several options for those needing extra support during the summer when the Seneca Falls Backpack Program is not operating.
The Mobile Food Pantry
The Mobile Food Pantry operates out of the House of Concern in Seneca Falls. There is no income or residency requirements, it is limited to one box per family and they do ask that people bring their own bag or box if possible. The pantry is open from 2:30 - 4:30 on June 22, July 12, August 24, September 21, October 19, November 16 and December 7.
