Description

BackPack Weekend Meals Program (Fridays, 7:30am-8:30am and 8:30am-9:00am)

Help us package and deliver meals for students in Cohoes through our BackPack program! In conjunction with the Regional Food Bank, we provide qualifying students with healthy weekend meals to ensure that they are able to start school each week, ready to learn.


There are two available Friday shifts for interested BackPack volunteers:

  • From 7:30 to 8:30 am, we package dry goods and produce
  • From 8:30 to 9:00 am, volunteer drivers deliver a route of 3-5 BackPacks to homes in Cohoes


Volunteers may sign up for one or both shifts. If you have any questions or would like to sign a large group up to volunteer, please reach out to us at volunteer@connectcenterforyouth.org
