"Dedicated to reducing hunger and building a stronger community."
Backus Community Center's COMMUNITY CAFE was the recipient of a very successful fundraising event. A team comprised of contagiously influential people from the International Falls community banded together with a mission to raise money to help sustain the Community Cafe meal program into 2021. Through online promotions, telephone calls, and in-person visits and conversations, the group raised (are you ready?) (DRUM ROLL PLEASE!) $50,865.00!!! FEED JUST ONECommunity Cafe is a twice a week, hot meal program at Backus Community Center. Each Tuesday and Thursday night guests come for a free, hot, nutritious meal. On average 250 meals are served per night. The goal since 2012 has been to reduce hunger and build a stronger community. Did you know:
