The panoramic photo above was taken from the roof of the Backus building. The view of the City of International Falls is quite beautiful and we thought it should be shared with you.

Wear a mask... slow the spread
The Community Café program is dedicated to reducing hunger and building a stronger community which is why every Tuesday and Thursday, Backus offers hot, nutritious meals to community members free of charge. Since March 17, Community Café has served over 9,000 meals and averages about 270 meals per night. From 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm, any area resident can come pick up meals. Due the COVID-19 pandemic, meals have been changed from dine-in to pick-up to follow Center of Disease Control guidelines. If you would like to pick up a meal, please call the Backus Office at (218) 285-7225 before 4:00 pm on Café days to reserve your meal. Meals can be picked up at door number 2.
2020 - 2021 Performing Arts Season
The Performing Arts Season is happening at Backus! Seating is limited, and we won't have season tickets available this year. Please see the "Events" tab in this Web Site for more information. Plan to get your tickets early; there is a great line-up of artists booked for this season!
One last thing...
Backus continues to keep the Community Café and Ruby’s Pantry programs in operation and is still offering spaces for rent. All spaces rented must follow the same safety protocols that are in place for Backus, including the restriction of gatherings greater than 10 people, until further notice. If you are interested in a space, please see “Building Rental” under the “About” tab or call the Backus Office at (218) 285-7225.
