Food Link's vision is a food system without waste, in which everyone has enough
Food Link collects surplus food from distributors and provides it to community organizations serving food insecure individuals and families
Food Link is the bridge between distributors and farms that have the capacity to donate fresh surplus food and community organizations that seek nutritious food for people who are in need.
Without Food Link, nearly one million pounds of fresh food would be wasted each year, negatively impacting our environment instead of feeding people in need.
