Join us Thursday, April 27th for the 2023 Taste of Malone!  The Taste of Malone is not just any fundraiser – it is an essential fundraising event that allows us to fulfill our commitment of eliminating childhood hunger in the North Country.  Help us continue this important work by dining out at participating restaurants on April 27th.

Each restaurant will generously donate 20% of revenue from dinein, takeout and gift card purchases in support of the Backpack Program.  

The Backpack Program is committed to eliminating childhood hunger in our region.  The program provides eligible children in grades kindergarten through six with healthy, nutritious meals on the weekend during the school year.  Food security is especially important for young people so they have the energy to engage, focus and grow.

A donation of any amount is always gratefully accepted. Another opportunity to offer your support is through our Adopt-A-Child program where you can sponsor a child’s participation in the Backpack Program for $125 for the year.  Your generous contribution can make a powerful, life-changing difference in the lives of those in need.

Mark your calendar and join us April 27th! Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of local children.
