 March is Nutrition Month and we're inviting you to join Team No Kid Hungry! 

Donations are being taken at all dining retail locations and all proceeds will go to The BackPack Program for Food Bank of the Southern Tier. The BackPack program ensures that children in need don't go hungry over the weekend when they aren't in school.

The need to supply children from low-income families is consistently rising. It only costs $3.00 to fill a backpack, but any amount helps!
