Secures $85K for Food Link
The US wastes about 126 billion pounds of food per year (ReFED).
Concurrently, almost 750,000 Massachusetts residents do not have consistent, dependable access to enough food to lead active, healthy lives (Feeding America).
A Local Solution
Food Link collects high-quality fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy, bread and prepared foods that would otherwise be wasted from 24 local grocery and prepared food stores.
The organization delivers the nutritious food to over 42 social service agencies serving people in need, including after school programs, programs for at-risk youth, low income housing facilities, homeless shelters, food pantries, and senior centers.
Food Link is based in Arlington, MA and serves 18 communities throughout Greater Boston, from South Boston to Lawrence. It operates 363 days a year, and is powered by 200 volunteers.
