 Seasons Eatings, everyone! Do you want to make a difference in a child’s life this Holiday Season? From December 1st through 16th, donations can be made at any of our ten retail dining locations.

All funds raised will go to the Food Bank of the Southern Tier’s Backpack Program to feed children in Tompkins County. When children from food insecure homes are not in school, often times, they aren't able to eat 3 meals per day. A $3.00 donation will fill a backpack with food for a child in need, helping to bridge the gap over weekends and school breaks.

From Senior Vice President Nancy Pringle, Provost Linda Petrosino, and Professor Gwen Seaquist, representatives of the Ithaca College bargaining committee.
