Food Link Operating Status 

Our Program Manager Elise challenged staff and volunteers to answer the question, “How do we maintain the generous heart of our work in these times of fear?”

Staff used this question to guide us as we made decisions about our operations with the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19. We agreed that first and foremost, Food Link exists to serve the community, particularly, the most vulnerable members of it. We believe our work is even more necessary when the systems that support community are disrupted.

With this in mind, Food Link remains open and running as usual. We have instituted all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of those in our extended community. We pride ourselves on our nimbleness, and we know it will serve us well in adapting as necessary to disruptions in the food system and our social supports. We will update you here with any changes that we make in the coming days.

Food Link Community Call to Action: In your actions, remember that we are all stronger working together to solve problems.
