The program looks to provide children at risk of weekend food insecurity with backpacks full of food to get through Saturdays and Sundays. Concert attendees will also have the chance to sponsor a child.”It’s $125 to sponsor a child, and that feeds the child every weekend for the entire school year.”According to the Food Bank of the Southern Tier, 52 percent of students in Broome County are at risk of not having enough food during the weekends.
