Put up a Hand for a Neighbor in Need

 Want to help local children in the Tompkins County community? Now, you can!

You may have noticed the “Helping Hands” signs posted all over retail locations on campus. They are for a great cause! This year IC Dining has partnered with Food Bank of the Southern Tier’s Backpack Program. The Back Pack program sends children who are at risk for hunger home on Fridays with a Back Pack full of Food. $3 buys one BackPack and $120 feeds a child for a year: So far we have raised  over $800!

All proceeds go directly to the Back Pack Program supporting children in Tompkins County. 

 Visit any retail location to donate (cash, debit and credit accepted) and read our sustainability blog for more information:

 This Campaign ends on Friday November 9th so, donate today! 

Stay connected with IC dining!
